Our New Meissen Family Guide

(L to R) Early Meissen Porcelain Family Guide and Meissen Gallery Guide

By now, you may have heard that The Cummer recently unveiled a remodeled Betsy and William D. Lovett Gallery featuring the reintstallation of the Ralph H. and Constance I. Wark Collection of Early Meissen Porcelain. Included in the re-installation are new ways to enjoy the collection, including the beautiful new panels in the cases, the podcastapp, and QR codes in the galleries (more on that in a later post), and the printed guides for visitors of all ages.

If you are a child, a child at heart, or a family with young children, you will love The Royal Dish Family Guide that you can pick up in the Lovett Gallery. Designed with children in mind, this guide helps you interpret the porcelain collection and understand important words, the history of porcelain, curating a collection, and the detailed paintings that decorate the porcelain pieces. There are spaces to draw, color and write. There is even a scavenger hunt! Remember that only pencils are allowed in the galleries, so grab a set of colored pencils from the Make Art Now cart just outside the gallery.

Now the mantra of “look, but don’t touch” that we all hear in the galleries is fun with an interactive family guide.
