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.

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.
