Collectors' Choice: Inside the Hearts and Minds of Regional Collectors

Event Details:
May 17, 2014 - September 14, 2014
Location: The Minerva and Raymond K. Mason Gallery

Nearly thirty local collectors are invited to shape this exhibition’s content, sharing some of their most prized possessions with the community.  Each collector has selected the pieces that best illustrate their passion for collecting. Although the works in the exhibition span continents and centuries, each has a unique story and broader message about the role art can play in our lives.  Many collectors use action words like “love,” “excite,” “energize,” and “fun” when describing pieces in their collections, and many speak of their excitement learning about new cultures and places.  All of these stories are told throughout the exhibition, and images by Jacksonville photographer Ingrid Damiani capture many collectors in their personal spaces.

No matter what their reasons for collecting, all of these individuals have generously shared their art with The Cummer, with the hope that it will evoke a personal and uplifting experience from everyone who sees it.

Nearly thirty local collectors are invited to shape this exhibition’s content, sharing some of their most prized possessions with the community.  Each collector has selected the pieces that best illustrate their passion for collecting. Although the works in the exhibition span continents and centuries, each has a unique story and broader message about the role art can play in our lives.  Many collectors use action words like “love,” “excite,” “energize,” and “fun” when describing pieces in their collections, and many speak of their excitement learning about new cultures and places.  All of these stories are told throughout the exhibition, and images by Jacksonville photographer Ingrid Damiani capture many collectors in their personal spaces.

No matter what their reasons for collecting, all of these individuals have generously shared their art with The Cummer, with the hope that it will evoke a personal and uplifting experience from everyone who sees it.
