CUMMER MUSEUM REOPENS HISTORIC GARDENS
Nearly two years after sustaining extensive damage during Hurricane Irma in 2017, the Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens has completed work on its $1.3 million garden reconstruction project.
The project focused on “reconstruction of the lower tier of the Museum’s historically significant English, Italian and Olmsted Gardens,” with historic archives being utilized to ensure that the original character of the gardens was preserved.
Danis and Athens, GA-based WLA Studio collaborated on the reconstruction project, which took around six months from start to finish.
