Cummer Museum Announces New Exhibit

Jul 30, 2018 02:00AM
The newest exhibition at the Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens, “Urban Spaces, Open Skies: 20th Century American Landscape, will be on view through February 2019. The exhibit, which opened on July 27, is drawn from the Cummer’s extensive collection of works on paper, featuring more than 30 prints celebrating modern cities and the timeless charms of the country. Visitors can admire how artists have aptly captured the changing landscape of burgeoning cities like New York and its iconic Brooklyn Bridge, busy street, workers, and harbors. In contrast with such images, the stillness and serenity of the countryside with its open spaces, fields, and lakes offer a welcome respite from the often chaotic urban life.

The Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens is located at 829 Riverside Avenue in Jacksonville. For more information call (904) 356-6857 or visit www.cummermuseum.org.
