+ City bans fine art festivals
The city of Sarasota announced a ban on Fine Art Festivals in a meeting last week. The ban, titled Fine Art Retail Termination (FART), forbids the selling of fine art as well as arts and crafts in downtown Sarasota. The festivals, usually found on the weekends along Gulfstream Avenue and at Five Points Park, were becoming safety hazards for tourists and causing traffic congestion. The ban will take effect immediately, and commissioners will not revisit the ban until 2016.
