It was a beautiful night to celebrate one of Jacksonville’s great visionaries, as patrons were treated to a tribute to Ninah Cummer. Through the current exhibit and display, “Conservation, Beautification, and a City Plan: Ninah Cummer and the Establishment of Jacksonville Parks,” the mission of one woman was illustrated throughout the evening. From artistic moments, to culinary treats, and décor that drew inspiration from the exhibition in the Millner Gallery – it was a fitting compliment to Cummer’s legacy.

With more than 350 patrons in attendance during the sold-out event, including a record-breaking number of Artisan ticketholders [under age 42] it was an evening full of energy.

“The Cummer Ball is our most important fundraising event at the Cummer Museum. It is a huge group effort, and I am in awe of the time, creativity, and generous spirit of our Chairs, Honorary Chairs, volunteers, sponsors, and staff,” said Executive Director Hope McMath. “It was a glorious evening celebrating the very best of art, gardens, education, and community.”
