Talks & Tea

The Talks & Tea Lecture Series invites you to sit comfortably in the Auditorium, Galleries, or Gardens while art historians, artists, and other experts facilitate informational and educational discussions on various topics related to the Museum’s Permanent Collection and Special Exhibitions. At the conclusion of each talk, tea and light refreshments will be served. The same lecture is provided for both Talks & Tea dates each month.

This program is made possible through support by The Woodcock Foundation for the Appreciation of the Arts, Inc., National Endowment for the Humanities, The Director’s Circle at The Cummer, The City of Jacksonville, and the Cultural Council of Greater Jacksonville, Inc.
