Back in May, the Ringling Museum of Asian Art in Sarasota, Florida, unveiled its new Center for Asian Art. Designed by the Boston-based architecture firm Machado Silvetti, the Center for Asian Art boasts 6,800 square feet of exhibition space, where treasures from the Ringling’s illustrious collection of Asian art are displayed. Helga Wall-Apelt, who donated millions to help the Ringling realize its new center, has filed a lawsuit against the museum, citing breach of contract.
