Individual tickets start at $175.  Tickets on sale now.

The highly popular Artful Lobster is our signature fundraising event, and the only one to take place on our Manasota Key Gulf-front campus. With luscious lobster, a complete gourmet buffet, live entertainment by Hermitage artists, and an anticipated auction, the Artful Lobster kicks off the season for many in our community.

This year we’ll see the progress made on the Hermitage landscape restoration project, funded through last year’s successful Artful Lobster paddle raise. We’ll witness a collaborative concert by two exciting and very different musicians who will be in residence: composer/pianist Courtney Bryan and vocalist/composer/multi-instrumentalist/dancer Jen Shyu. And of course, we’ll enjoy the company of friends and the luscious lobster feast catered by Michael’s On East.

As always, all proceeds go toward the Hermitage mission: inspiring the artists of our time.  

WHAT:  A luscious lobster feast by Michael’s On East on our Gulf-front beach campus with entertainment and delightful auction items. Chaired by Jarred Wilson.
