The Elling Eide Center is a private research library and nature preserve overlooking Little Sarasota Bay. Dedicated to the study of classical Chinese literature and art, the Center fills a unique role in the cultural and scholarly landscape of its Florida coastal location. Our docent-led tour will give our members a comprehensive look at the Elling Eide Center, the 72-acre waterfront preserve which brings together Old Florida and new modern architecture. Sarasota architect Guy Peterson, FAIA, designed the Center’s research library, which shares the landscape with a rich assortment of native and exotic plants. The Center’s collection amassed by Eide over six decades contains comprehensive library holdings and special collections of rare books, manuscripts and artwork that represent a significant new resource for Asian Studies scholars.

40 maxiumum (Members and Guests)

Optional lunch at Mattison’s 41 after the tour.
