Mark-Making is the theme of the works in the Rothko to Richter exhibition. It’s the brush strokes and movement you see in the paint. It’s the marks with broomstick handles and squeegees that the artists leave behind. Consequently, this theme has resonated throughout the planning of the 2015 Cummer Ball. This year a group of dedicated staff and volunteers have lined up a wonderful selection of Artistic Moments for you to enjoy during the evening. It’s just one of the many ways this Ball is going to be Uniquely Cummer!
During cocktail hour, witness artist Chip Southworth making magic happen on Masonite as he burns his images into wood before layering it with thick strokes of paint to add another dimension to his pieces. Happen upon a performance by Jacksonville Dance Theatre and get transported to another dimension with a modern dance inspired by the Museum’s beautiful campus. Feed your soul with sounds from Tropic of Cancer and the Ritz Sound and Vocal Performers. After dinner, the sassy and sultry sounds of Mama Blue will have you moving your feet in no time in the specially transformed Terry Gallery.
Whether it is live painting, contemporary dance or music, art comes in so many shapes and styles. Make sure you get your ticket to Cummer Ball (click here to get them before it sells out!) to see how each of these artisans make their own marks on the world’s canvas.
