Jacksonville Florida Cummer Museum

Art, Education, and Entertainment

For the art lover, as well as the family parent, there are three aspects that can take a vacation getaway museum from average to excellent. These are the experiences of art, education, and entertainment. Art is nothing short of leisure. It is a feeding of the senses. To view a work of art is to look into the very heart and soul of the artist and to kindle a love affair with creativity and imagination. Education is, in the eye of the parenting art lover, a way to give their children a love and a passion for the creative muse, to pass on this admiration to their children. It is the greatest gift that a parent can give. Throw a little entertainment in the mix and you have the ultimate vacation attraction with something for everyone. You can get all this at the Jacksonville Florida Cummer Museum.

Art

One would be hard-pressed to find a more concise and complete collection of art than at the Cummer Museum. Here you will wander through one maze like hall after another of endless art work in so many styles and genres. This establishment lays claim to more than six thousand beautiful and muse encompassing works that date back as far as eight thousand years ago. Among the many great artists of our time and times past, you will find the delicate works of Dennis C. Hayes and Eugene Louis Charvot.

Nevertheless, one must realize that art is not always intended to be art. The spirit of creativity can also be found in the ancient antiquities found in the Cummer Museum. There are many excellent exhibits of Egyptian art via engraved tablets, vases, and more. There is also Greek and Roman art from the B.C. period to the early A.D. era.

Education

Every experienced parent knows that the most effective way that his or her children will learn is by doing, not merely by seeing. Children learn more by the use of their hands than all other senses put together. With this in mind, the Jacksonville Cummer Museum has recently instituted their Art Connections exhibit. Here the entire family has the option of to actually interact with the art. For example, there is one area where you actually step into one of the paintings. In another you can paint with a high tech virtual paintbrush. This is truly an excellent opportunity to get your young ones really interested in their creative aspects.

Entertainment

There is always something fun and interesting going on at the Cummer Museum. There are artistic dances, auctions, lectures and meetings with real artists, and so much more. Some past events have included such far out concepts as a toga party wherein the Museum hosts a Roman style get together. You never know what is going to be happening at this museum.

This year, on your annual Florida vacation, make sure that you stop in at the Jacksonville Cummer Museum. There are many good reasons to be found in the art, but consider your family. Pass on your love for creativity to your children. Who knows, maybe someday you'll be coming to this fine museum to see their artwork.
