TWIS Talks RIAF: Jessi Smith blogs for the 2012 Ringling International Arts Festival

by: Jessi Smith

 On behalf of myself and the rest of the team at This Week in Sarasota, I am excited to announce that I have joined up with the John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art to provide exclusive, behind-the-scenes coverage of the 2012 Ringling International Arts Festival (RIAF).

In my role as official blogger for the fourth annual RIAF, I will keep my finger on the pulse of the festival during the months leading up to it through interviews with organizers and artists, behind-the-scenes peeks at festival preparations and in-depth commentary on what to expect in the theaters, galleries and grounds of the Ringling Museum during the Oct. 10–13 festival.

Between the months of August and October, I will be sharing my posts on This Week in Sarasota as they appear in RIAF’s official blog on so that you won’t miss a thing. Stay tuned with TWIS during the months leading up to and throughout the festival for previews and show reviews.
