What piece could better exemplify the contemporary representation of the cultural icon of Sarasota than Vaadia’s David! Let’s begin the discussion of Michelangelo’s David, as seen in reproduction at the Ringling Museum and Vaadia’s representation of his coreligionist’s epic stance.

Additional works by this artist can be seen on display at the Sarasota Herald Tribune building on Main Street in downtown Sarasota January 8 through May 30, 2014.
