Japanese culture was the focus of the first in a series of three themed dinner parties in 2019 to benefit The Cummer Museum of Art and Gardens. “Artful Umami” was held Jan. 10 at the Riverside-based museum, where its new director, Adam Levine, was on hand to greet patrons and supporters. A private art tour for VIP guests, some clad in colorful Japanese attire, included a signature cocktail.

The evening celebrated the exhibit “Fields of Color: The Art of Japanese Printmaking” and included performances by Japanese artists, umami-packed food and sake. Lory Doolittle was the presenting sponsor and Peggy and J.F. Bryan, along with Publix Super Markets Charities, were sponsors.
