The Renaissance-era courtyard of the Ringling Museum of Art was overtaken recently by something more modern — 20-somethings.
The first Ringling Underground of the season Sept. 6 was an above-ground meshing of art, film and music into a relaxed event catered to the young and young at heart.
Underneath the hulking cast of Michelangelo’s “David,” an electro pop-dance duo played, just one of three bands that kept churning out the cool tunes on the humid night. Psychedelic-experimental group Jane Jane Pollock and transitional indie-rock group Tosspot also put on a show.
There were a couple of black-and-white portrait photographs displayed on the grass, and 10-year-old Pokémon episodes, along with other vintage anime, were projected along the walls of the corridor.
Attendees also had the privilege of viewing the “Deco Japan” exhibit but appeared to be more interested in lounging beneath “Joseph’s Coat,” the Skyspace installation by James Turrell.
The LED lights accentuated the star-filled sky, while the bands played nearby.
Pencil it in: The next Ringling Underground takes place Oct. 4.
