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.

NEW THIS YEAR – There will be a round trip, air conditioned trolley bringing Artful Lobster attendees to the Hermitage from Sarasota. Please check back later for trolley service details.

Co-chaired by Susan Brainerd and Susan McLeod, 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.
