Jacksonville, Fla. — The Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens announces its participation in the global Outings Project. Led by local artists Dolf James, Corey Kolb, and Doug Eng of CoRK, Cummer Outings is an installation of figures taken from works in the Museum’s Permanent Collection, blown-up and adhered to buildings in the core of downtown Jacksonville, presenting classical works of art in a wholly contemporary way. While the project is global, with over 70 locations around the world, Jacksonville is one of only 16 cities in the United States involved, and the only city in the Southeast to participate.

The Outings Project was founded by artist Julien de Casabianca and is primarily driven forward by artists and art enthusiasts. It focuses on putting classical works of art from museum collections on weather-worn corners, alley walls, and abandoned buildings. The Cummer Museum installation takes figures out of their backgrounds and off the sterile gallery walls, putting them at street level for people to interact with on a personal level. The images have a sense of being out of time and place, and their sheer size inspires awe. Intentionally placed on unattractive walls and buildings in downtown, the goal of Cummer Outings is to help beautify the downtown area, and make artwork from the Cummer Collection more accessible to the people of the city, inspiring interaction and conversation. The figures are primarily in lesser-known works with anonymous subjects, adding to the mystery and allure of the experience. They are the people in the works of art you may not pay attention to while in a gallery full of more well known works.

“This project is about giving people the opportunity to build relationships with people from the past,” says Cummer Museum Director Hope McMath. “It is about beautifying the spaces where people walk, work, and play. We intentionally married some of our most beautiful images with downtown spaces that are often overlooked.”

Why would a museum engage in “graffiti”? This is, in fact, not graffiti. The wheat paste and paper application results in no property damage, and no images have been installed on buildings without the permission of the building’s owners. In fact, the overwhelmingly positive response from building owners is a testament to the desire within the city for more art, more culture, and more beauty. The project is paired with the enthusiasm and hard work of Dolf James. After seeing the global project begin to pop up on his social networks, he was inspired to learn more and become involved. “It sounded like a great way to get some art around town easily and inexpensively, and it gives people the ability to see paintings that are in the Museum,” says James. “It is a great connection to the public and a way for the Cummer Museum to connect in a way museums normally do not connect with people.”

In the coming months, the Cummer Museum hopes to expand the project into more neighborhoods and involve youth and volunteer groups in both choosing and installing the images, and the Cummer Museum is currently looking for additional building owners interested in becoming involved in the project.

The best outcome possible would be for people who would not normally engage with artwork to stumble upon it and have an experience of it they would not have expected, take pictures, and share experiences.
