Cummer Museum opens Olmsted Gardens

logo

Join and celebrate the Grand Opening of the Olmsted Garden.  The Member Opening will take place on Wednesday, April 10th, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. and the Garden will open to the public on Thursday, April 11th at 10 a.m.  This really is a historic event for The Cummer, as we re-open the Garden that surrounded the home of Waldo and Clara Cummer, the brother and sister-in-law of Museum founders Arthur and Ninah Cummer.  This Garden was designed by the Olmsted Firm, and has been restored to its former glory, nearly doubling The Cummer Garden’s Riverfront footage.

At the Opening event, Members will enjoy: Classical Music by The String Group, Plein Air Artist’s Claire J Kendrick, Teri Tompkins, Beth Haizlip, Donna Grasso will be painting in the Olmsted Garden, Comments by Director Hope McMath, and a dance performance by Jennifer Muller / The Works.   So please join us in our celebration, as we bring this beautiful new Garden to the community.

 

This event is free for Members, and $15 for Non-member Guests.
