Like many locals, have you taken pride in the John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art but failed to stop to see what the fuss is all about? Saturday is your chance to remedy that situation with a free visit to our own renowned art repository. It’s International Museum Day/Art Museum Day and all across the country vaunted institutions are throwing open their doors to the hoi polloi. You can also head to Tampa for half-off the Tampa Art Museum or free entry into the Dali Museum’s “Contemporary Magic: A Tarot Deck Art Project” and accompanying panel discussion.
