A Genius for Place Exhibition On View Now



Now on view at The Cummer, A Genius for Place: American Landscapes of the Country Place Era. This exhibition features 52 large-scale black and white photographs of many well-known historic American estates.  From Stockbridge, Massachusetts to Santa Barbara, California, A Genius for Place exhibits seven landscape designs that were originally created as private estates, but have retained significant portions of the original layout.   This exhibition puts our own 2.5 acres of historic riverfront gardens into context.  Developed by the Cummer family more than one hundred years ago, the museum’s gardens are prime examples of the Country Place era in Florida.

In conjunction with A Genius for Place, the Cummer is also currently exhibiting Community Garden Photography, which highlights photographs taken by local professional and amateur photographers of The Cummer Gardens from different perspectives and eras.   Come and enjoy great art or the quiet reading area in the gallery, both with breathtaking views of the gardens. Both exhibitions will be on view until April 24th.
