New Name, Same Incredible Program!

Apr

09

Originally launched in 1995 as the VSA Festival, the Museum’s annual Festival, underwent a name change this year to align with Florida’s leading arts access organization, Arts4All/Florida, formerly VSA of Florida. Developed in alignment with the guiding principles of VSA, the International Organization on Arts and Disability, part of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, the Cummer Museum’s Arts4All Festival has become a national model, receiving consistent local and national recognition in its field.

This is a population that often faces many challenges and barriers in their everyday lives that others do not.  The Cummer Museum believes that art is for all people and constantly looks for ways to remove barriers and ease challenges for persons with disabilities to engage with and to create art.
