The John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art is located in Sarasota, Florida on the grounds of the Ringling Circus Museum.  The art shown here is traditional and nothing to do with the Circus.  Circus exhibits and art is all on the other side of the Circus Museum.  John and Mable Ringling collected art from all over the world in the 1920’s and wanted to have a large museum for everyone to enjoy.  The building is “U” shaped and in the center outside is a huge sculpture garden.  Here are four bronze statues that surround and become part of a fountain. I like the bronze turtles that are climbing up to the top.
