Diversity, Equity, Access, Inclusion STATEMENT When NinahCummerbequeathed her art collection and riverfront home to establish the CummerMuseum of Art & Gardens, she noted her desire to create “a center of beauty and culture” for the benefit of “all of the people.” Museums were created to be a safe space to invoke conversation and bring people together to create meaningful experiences. The CummerMuseum is committed to listening and learning how it can best serve ALL in our community. We are committed to ensuring that diversity, equity, access, and inclusion are deeply woven into the fabric of the CummerMuseum. We recognize and promote the importance of diversity in thought, and through age, race, gender, sexual orientation, differing abilities, and religion, which adds to the richness of our environment and what we provide to our community. In our Diversity Statement and Plan, our goal is to foster a culture that celebrates inclusion, equity, and access. To ensure compliance of our commitment, an annual audit will be conducted and reviewed by Museum leadership and our Board of Trustees.


Diversity, Equity, Access, & Inclusion

The Cummer Museum's Director of Community Engagement and Inclusion, Wanda Willis, is dedicated to and leads the Museum's efforts to cultivate meaningful partnerships and promote strong community engagement. Our vision is to be a socially responsible partner that connects diverse audiences and is inclusive and representative of our community.

The Cummer Museum resides within the ancestral and unceded homelands of the Timucua, indigenous peoples who inhabited the present-day geographies of southeast Georgia into north and central Florida. It is believed that the last Timucua left the area with the Spanish when Florida ceded to England, with the last known Timucua, Juan Alonso Cabale, dying in Cuba in 1767. When visiting the Cummer Museum’s Gardens, we invite you to join us in acknowledging the significance of place, legacies of dispossession, and offering respect and care for the land and its resources.
