Commitment to Representation Through Quality - 10 Questions with Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens Director and CEO, Adam Levine
"We want the Cummer to be a destination for anyone - we want this place to be an indispensable part of Jacksonville’s identity."
- Adam Levine -
The Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens has been a staple in Jacksonville's arts and cultural landscape for as long as we can remember. Founded in 1961, its permanent collection includes over five thousand works of art dating from 2100 BCE to the twenty-first century. Known mostly for its European and American paintings as well as its considerable holdings of Meissen porcelain, the museum also has an award-winning education center, Art Connections, which boasts a number of interactive educational installations and serves underprivileged and special education students with its programs.
Since the appointment of Adam Levine, PhD. as Director and CEO in late 2018, The Cummer has been broadening its scope to include a lot of new and exciting programs and initiatives. We had the privilege to hear from Dr. Levine himself about these new developments, and ask a few questions about the future of the Cummer, why representation matters, and what changes are going on for and within the museum right now.
