We are Looking Forward to 50 More Years at The Cummer!



Over the past 50 years, the Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens has become an acclaimed cultural and educational facility in Northeast Florida. The Cummer’s collection has grown from 60 works of art to nearly 5,000.  Art Connections is a nationally recognized, state-of-the-art education program for people of all ages and abilities. The Cummer Gardens, recently listed in the National Register of Historic Places, continue to provide a place of beauty for our visitors. Now, with a solid foundation built during our first 50 years, The Cummer is embarking on a renewed effort to fulfill our mission, “to engage and inspire through the arts, gardens and education.”

To celebrate our 50th Anniversary year, an anonymous donor has offered to match up to $50,000 of the funds raised through The Cummer’s 2011 Annual Fund. Every gift matters, from $5 to $5,000.

We want to now what inspires you at The Cummer. Is it beautiful art in the galleries, historic gardens overlooking the St. Johns River, or maybe the school group you saw touring the Museum on your last visit? Below are specific ways that your contribution can make a difference at The Cummer.

Art: Your gift will support conservation of the collection, including the restoration and reinstallation of an important 17th century tapestry.

Gardens: Your contribution will help to beautify The Cummer’s landscape along Riverside Avenue and the Art Connections’ entrance, bringing the beauty of the historic gardens to the entire campus.

Education: Your donation will aid in meeting our goal to allow an additional 5,000 children access to tours, school outreach, camps and classes celebrating the joy of art and gardens.

Bringing it all together: Your support will create a more meaningful visitor experience through using cutting-edge technology and placing The Cummer’s collection and gardens in the palm of your hand.

Please consider making a gift today to double your impact on these important programs at The Cummer. We are currently at the $43,000 mark and have $7,000 left to reach our goal. We need your help to continue building on the Museum’s foundation of cultural inspiration for the next 50 years.

Remember, your gift to The Cummer is 100% tax deductible.
