The Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens Announces a Bon Voyage Late Night Event for Impressionism and Post-Impressionism from the High Museum of Art on Saturday, May 5 until Midnight

Mon, 04/30/2012

Jacksonville, Fla. – On Saturday, May 5th, guests can enjoy a special late night evening at the Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens to bid farewell to the impressive Impressionism and Post-Impressionism from the High Museum of Art exhibition.  The Bon Voyage celebration will feature docent-guided tours of the exhibition at 6 p.m. and 8 p.m., live music from 6 to 11 p.m., and extended hours until Midnight.  For anyone who hasn't seen the exhibition and art and culture lovers who want to enjoy it one last time before it returns to Atlanta, the Bon Voyage event is just the ticket.  

The Impressionism and Post Impressionism from the High Museum of Art exhibition presents more than 50 works by some of the most recognizable names in art, including Claude Monet, Camille Pissarro, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Mary Cassatt and John Singer Sargent.   The exhibition illustrates the emergence of Impressionism in France during the 1870s, the movement's evolution to Post-Impressionism, and its later influence on American artists.   “This progressive look provides a unique perspective of one of the most controversial, significant and ultimately widely popular artistic movements,” said Hope McMath, Director of The Cummer. “It's certainly a crowd favorite and a must-see collection we were thrilled to bring to The Cummer and the city of Jacksonville.”  The exhibition is on loan from the High Museum of Art in Atlanta.
