Art Connections

 

Art Connections sets the stage for interactive learning that takes place throughout the rest of The Cummer.  Learn about the history of art through an interactive timeline with videos, music and sculptures to touch. Paint your own painting on a giant digital canvas. Create a self-portrait by drawing with your finger over a photo of you on a computer screen. Dance to music while watching your body move in a rainbow of colors on a large screen. Make a garden collage or a crayon rubbing landscape to take home. The space is great for people of all ages who choose to interact with art at The Cummer in a different way.

 

Creativity Timeline

Using the Museum's own collection as its core, this chronological display packs over 30,000 years of artistic history into 40 feet. Interactive stations allow visitors to view, listen, touch and explore the relationship art has shared with science, technology and culture since 35,000 B.C.


Picture Perfect

Picture Perfect allows visitors to paint their own masterpieces without even putting on a smock. Moving a large paintbrush through the air, the painting appears on a giant video screen. A seating area behind the display allows friends and family to encourage painters, and, upon completion, the work can be printed and taken home.


Gallery Under Five

One of several exhibits for children aged 18 months to five years, this exhibit presents art on a smaller scale. Here, younger children can better appreciate art from the museum in a setting where it's easier for them to see, and they won't feel intimidated by large objects.


Face to Face

Using a touchscreen, visitors can create their very own self-portraits, which can then be printed out and taken home. It's the perfect way to start an art experience - in familiar territory.


Visions/Versions

The Cummer commissioned four separate artists to create works inspired by The Cummer Gardens - each in a medium of the artist's choosing. Visitors can view the art (a drawing, an oil painting, a relief print and a clay vase) accompanied by video featuring the artists discussing the various inspirations, tools and techniques related to the media in which they work. It's a great way to learn about the creative process and how it varies from one individual to the next.
