Mildred Sainer Pavilion

5313 Bay Shore Road
Sarasota, Florida 34243

(941) 487-4665

Mildred Sainer Pavilion

Just to the left of the Ringling Museum of Art, the Mildred Sainer Music and Arts Pavilion is the centerpiece of New College’s Caples Fine Arts Complex, a haven for student artists and performers.

The acoustic perfection of a concert hall combines with the intimacy of a private music chamber to create a 257-seat auditorium (260 with 3 wheelchair positions) that is perfect for solo or duo recital, small instrumental groups, lectures and small dramatic productions. The lobby doubles as a reception area and a visual arts exhibition area where art works can be displayed.

Free parking is available in front of the building and along Caples Drive in the grass on the left hand side of the road. Patrons may be dropped off under the portico. Accessible parking spaces are to the right of the building.

PepsiCo Arcade

Sarasota, Florida 34243

(941) 487-4665

PepsiCo Arcade

To the rear of the Mildred Sainer Pavilion is the PepsiCo Arcade and Forum, designed with reference to the Mediterranean Revival Style of nearby Caples Hall. The forum’s large grassy area serves as a private outdoor space away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. A small stage overlooking the courtyard provides an ideal place for performances and receptions.

Free parking is available in front of the Mildred Sainer Pavilion and along Caples Drive in the grass on the left hand side of the road. Accessible parking spaces are to the right of the Mildred Sainer Pavilion, and sidewalks connect to the Arcade itself.

Built in 1926 by Charles Ringling of the Ringling Brothers Circus, College Hall is the signature building on the New College campus.

The new Black Box Theater is located in the Hamilton Student Center on the College’s East Campus.

The theater lobby includes a new Art Gallery Space in-the-round for displaying student work.

Free parking is available in front of the Sudakoff Center, but this lot also serves as a parking area for our students. In the event that the Sudakoff lot is full, overflow parking is available in the gravel lot on the north side of General Spaatz Blvd.
