“You must not ever stop being whimsical." ~ Mary Oliver

Not long ago, a couple of friends steered us in the direction of the Marietta Museum of Art and Whimsy, located in Sarasota, Florida. We are so glad that they did!














"Art", the security guard at the entrance, was created by Marc Sijan in 2009. He is made of resin, acrylic and oil paint. The detail is incredible.








Check out Bruce's muse behind him!




Even the restrooms are fun!




A wonderful way to spend an afternoon!

    1. We though that the security guard was real as well! When he didn't respond to questions, we realized the truth!
