The Sarasota Art Museum took its closest supporters on an extensive art tour during its first Ambassadors Salon event on Jan. 11.
The art highlight event, held at longtime supporters Bill and Elaine Crouse's private residence on Siesta Key, had SAM supporters arrive by trolley for an evening of art appreciation.
Guests met and sipped drinks while admiring the extensive collection of art deco posters and designs owned by Bill Crouse.
What's more is the event had two special art guides for the evening. Angelina Lippert, the chief curator and director of content of Poster House joined Nicholas Lowry, the principal auctioneer and president of Swann Auction Galleries to lead the guests through a detailed discussion of much of the artwork hanging throughout the Crouse's home.
The next Ambassadors Salon event is planned for this March.
