Free First Saturdays at The Cummer

Feb

14

Beginning March 2, 2013 the Museum will be hosting Free First Saturdays!  Thanks to the generous support of Delores Barr Weaver and J. Wayne Weaver, this new initiative will provide free access to the Museum on the first Saturday of every month, as well as funding to provide a public sculpture garden set to open in September.

“It is especially gratifying that our support and that of others will open this very special museum to all of Jacksonville through the Public Sculpture Garden and Weaver Free First Saturdays.  I will now think of The Cummer as the people’s museum.”

– Delores Barr Weaver

The Weaver’s gift provides greater access for the entire community, making art, and the programs at The Cummer more available to more people. Through this gift, the Weavers continue their long commitment to supporting the arts in Jacksonville and serving the community by providing free access for all.

“The Weavers have been long time supporters of our efforts around education.  This significant gift expands upon our shared vision of a Museum that is a core asset to the Community and is open, engaging and relevant to all who desire to participate.  I know I am not alone in marveling at the unparalleled impact the Weavers have had on the quality of life in Jacksonville.”

-Hope McMath

In addition to the free admission aspect of the day, each Saturday will include special programming: Yoga in the Gardens, special projects on the Make Art Now cart, live music by local musicians, and more!
