7 to 8 P.M. | Virtual Lecture Series with Scott Brown, Ph.D. Treasures from the Collection of Ninah CummerLearn More >
The works that Ninah Cummer bequeathed from her own collection to found our museum form a portrait of her as a collector and founder, as a woman both of her time and looking toward the future that she meant the Cummer Museum to serve. Ninah’s collection offers insights into her concepts of art, beauty, and history and perspective on how our own concepts have evolved and changed since the museum’s founding. This talk features some of Ninah’s most fascinating treasures, including fixtures of our permanent galleries and other gems from the museum vaults.
