Patron Saints: Mitchell McKnight

The Observer launched a web video series in March called “Patron Saints,” in which we recognize area performing-arts venues and the patrons who support them. It’s all in keeping with the idea that Sarasota is an arts city, and these individuals make it possible.

This week’s video showcases Mitchell McKnight, Circus Sarasota board chairman. After seeing a circus performance many years ago, he was inspired by the magic to get involved in a bigger way. But, it’s the programs that keep him donating every year. One such program, Sailor Circus, teaches kids circus arts and how to accomplish tasks they couldn’t have done before. It gives them confidence and self-esteem, and he thinks that’s worthwhile. 

Stay tuned for future episodes featuring Asolo Repertory Theatre, Florida Studio Theatre, PLATO and Venice Theatre.
