WRITTEN BY MATTHEW CHIN, ADVANCEMENT INTERN
Thank you to the Florida Blue Volunteers who offered their support on April 24 at the Museum to ensure the success of the 2017 Very Special Arts (VSA) Festival. Florida Blue has been a loyal sponsor of the Cummer Museum for many years, underwriting Florida Blue Free Tuesdays, which provides free admission, live music, and garden and permanent collection tours each Tuesday evening. Last year, Florida Blue Free Tuesdays served a diverse array of more than 27,000 visitors. The VSA Festival is another huge way for us to give back to the community as an opportunity for students with special needs in the greater Jacksonville area to engage with art, movement, and music, as well as have the opportunity to create their own works of art. The Florida Blue Volunteers worked tirelessly in order to ensure that students attending the festival have the necessary materials to create their masterpieces and enjoy their experience at the Museum to the fullest.
