Moon Gazing River Cruise: April 5, 2012. Join the Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens for a brilliant evening as we cruise the St. Johns River under the evening sky. Enjoy wine, cheese and light hors d’oeuvres. Like Japanese Artist Tsukioka Yoshitoshi, whose selected woodblock prints from the series One Hundred Views of the Moon, are currently on view at The Cummer, you will be entranced by the moon as it lights a shimmering path along the river on this hour-and-a-half cruise. We will board The Riverkeeper Water Taxi between 7:00 and 7:30 pm at The Riverside Artist Market Dock under the Fuller Warren Bridge and return to disembark at approximately 9:00 pm. The trip is $45.00 and reservations can be made by contacting Louise Stevens at (904)899-6004.
