50 Forward: New Additions to the Permanent Collection

Event Details:
January 31, 2012 - July 31, 2012
Location: The Thomas H. Jacobsen Gallery of American Art

Hughie Lee-Smith (American, 1915-1999), End of the Festival, 1954, oil on Masonite, 24 x 36 in., Purchased with funds from the 2011 Grand Benefactors of the Cummer Ball and the Robert Helms Memorial Fund, AP.2011.3.1. 

The exhibition presents a sample of the art objects that entered The Cummer’s collection in celebration of the Museum’s 50th Anniversary in 2011. These works also reflect The Cummer’s collecting priorities, outlined in a recent strategic document that solicited input from staff, trustees, members, visitors, artists, art historians, and community leaders.

Several works in this exhibition were purchased using funds from The Cummer Ball and other generous donors that are dedicated to art acquisition. However, the majority of the works acquired in honor of this landmark anniversary are gifts to the Museum, or are promised gifts to the Museum in future years. We are thankful to donors who have carried on the legacy of Ninah Cummer. She hoped others would share her vision, and through their interest and contributions, Cummer donors insure that the Museum will continue to thrive for future generations.

Summary: 
<p>The Cummer unveils new acquisitions made through gifts and purchases in honor of the Museum&rsquo;s 50th Anniversary.</p>

Hughie Lee-Smith (American, 1915-1999), End of the Festival, 1954, oil on Masonite, 24 x 36 in., Purchased with funds from the 2011 Grand Benefactors of the Cummer Ball and the Robert Helms Memorial Fund, AP.2011.3.1. 

The exhibition presents a sample of the art objects that entered The Cummer’s collection in celebration of the Museum’s 50th Anniversary in 2011. These works also reflect The Cummer’s collecting priorities, outlined in a recent strategic document that solicited input from staff, trustees, members, visitors, artists, art historians, and community leaders.

Several works in this exhibition were purchased using funds from The Cummer Ball and other generous donors that are dedicated to art acquisition. However, the majority of the works acquired in honor of this landmark anniversary are gifts to the Museum, or are promised gifts to the Museum in future years. We are thankful to donors who have carried on the legacy of Ninah Cummer. She hoped others would share her vision, and through their interest and contributions, Cummer donors insure that the Museum will continue to thrive for future generations.
