Congratulations to Cummer Amelia, the Museum’s affinity group on Amelia Island, for raising more support for the Museum this year than ever before. From developing new partnerships, to strengthening the connection with local residents, and executing successful events and programs, Cummer Amelia has contributed more than $35,000 to the Museum from their activities and raised more than $53,000 from in-kind support.
Born in Boston, Massachusetts on May 18, 1938, Janet Fish was raised on the island of Bermuda and came from a family of artists. Her grandfather, Clark Vorhees, was an American Impressionist painter, while her father was an art history teacher, and her mother, Florence Whistler Fish, was a sculptor and potter. Fish knew from a young age that she wanted to pursue the visual arts. She was talented in ceramics—having access to her mother’s kiln—and initially intended to be a sculptor.
The Junior Docents of the Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens are students in the sixth through twelfth grades. Each school year they contribute hours to the Museum and the community. They participate in varied learning experiences and create an exhibition consisting of their original work.
Thank you to the Florida Blue Volunteers who offered their support on April 24 here at the Museum in order ensure the success of the 2017 Very Special Arts (VSA) Festival.
