    Good, bringing anything that depicts the corrupt aura of New Orleans would be suicide to Sarasota..we are ever so close right now we don't need to help it along...

    Disappointing. As a 23 year old who grew up here, left and graduated from college, and moved back see a gallery as only a positive thing. Anyone who says that it does not belong does not understand the true benefits of bringing revenue and a feel of hospitality to a town that claims to be built on it. It encroaches on the public? How? By making them walk through or around local artists work? Sarasota city commission is just ridiculous in how against change and entertainment they are. This is the reason our youth turn to house parties and trouble instead of having a place to actually have fun in a more stimulating environment.
