The Ringling

The Ringling is the State Art Museum of Florida and is administered by Florida State University. It features a historic mansion, art museum, circus museum, historic theater, conservation center, arboretum, and reference library, situated on 66 acres of spectacular bayfront property in Sarasota. The Ringling serves as the legacy of John and Mable Ringling—a place of art, architecture, and circus in an environment that inspires, educates, and entertains. The Ringling is an extraordinary center of art and culture that engages the local, state, and global communities and is accessible to and inclusive of all.

As a green business partner, the Ringling is going above and beyond to implement environmental initiatives. Stating with creating a green team to assist with environmental programs throughout their organization, the Ringling is working to improve their environmental performance with their buildings and grounds. The building facilities have been updated with LED lighting and a control system to assist with optimizing efficiency and costs. They are constantly working to improve the recycling rates of the museum and have moved away from using single-use plastics where possible. The grounds have installed rain sensors to reduce water usage and even turn off the system in the summer and only use as needed.
