Wed, 06/20/2012

Jacksonville, Fla. - The Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens is celebrating Independence Day with a Garden Concert featuring The RiverTown Band on Wednesday, July 4 from 7 to 10 p.m.  Put on your red, white and blue, grab a blanket or chair and come celebrate America's 236th Birthday in The Cummer Gardens. With the St. Johns River as a backdrop and stars above, the sounds of The RiverTown Band will keep you entertained all evening.  The Cummer will be closed during normal business hours on July 4, but will open at 6 p.m. for the Garden Concert. 

Guests are welcome to bring blankets, chairs, food and alcoholic beverages.  Food and refreshments will also be available for purchase from the TreeCup Café.  Tickets are $10 for members, $20 for non-members and $400 for a table, which includes reserved seating and a gourmet picnic basket for 10 people.  Children 3 and under enjoy free admission.  The concert will go on rain or shine.  To purchase tickets, please call (904) 899-6004 or click here

Please note: Fireworks will be presented on the River by the City of Jacksonville and the view from the Gardens is obstructed.

“The Gardens provide a great backdrop for the concert, said Cummer Director Hope McMath. “A welcoming atmosphere for the celebration of our nation to patriotic music is sure to make for an exhilarating evening.”

During the Garden Concert, guests can also enjoy The Cummer’s permanent collection, historic gardens, Art Connections and current exhibitions, Miradas: Ancient Roots in Modern and Contemporary Mexican Art: Works from the Bank of America Collection and Richard Chamberlain: The Year of the Sheep.  Miradas, on view through September 16, is composed of nearly 100 paintings, prints and photographs created over the past 80 years.  The exhibition examines and celebrates work by artists on both sides of the border—American and Mexican-American—to reveal a variety of cultural aspects as they emerged in the years after the Mexican Revolution (1910–1920) to the present day.   Richard Chamberlain: The Year of the Sheep, on view through July 8, features 22 black-and-white abstracted landscape paintings, from snapshot size to window proportions, by Chamberlain inspired by his time serving in the Vietnam War.

The July 4th Garden Concert is sponsored by CAPTRUST Advisors, LLC.
