Garden Art: From a Visitor’s Eye

Feb

03

By Guest Blogger Megan Belcher

The stretch of cold weather should be no deterrent to visiting the Cummer Gardens.  Even when the landscape isn’t awash in blooms, there is still beauty to be found throughout this idyllic space on the bank of the St. Johns River.

The mythical “Diana of the Hunt” beckons us to aim for the heavens…

…while the “Two Children with a Goose” keep us grounded with their playful and sweet affection.


Prominent sculptures are not the only gems throughout the gardens – passages, shrubbery, walkways, and walls offer beautiful creations.

From a gargoyle…


…to a cowardly lion…


…even fountain faces are there to greet the keen observer.


The Cummer Gardens offer a wealth of unique and inspiring treasures that will delight visitors year-round, proof that art isn’t just inside the Museum!

More of Megan’s photos can be seen on Flikr.  If you are interested in becoming a guest blogger for The Cummer, please email asesnick@cummer.org for more information.
