Cummer Museum Art & Gardens September 21st 10am – 4pm.  Free Admission for All

By: Amy Chamberlin, Associate Director of Marketing, The Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens

The Cummer is pleased to present The Human Figure: Sculptures by Enzo Torcoletti as the inaugural exhibition in the J. Wayne and Delores Barr Weaver Community Sculpture Garden & Plaza.  Although based in St. Augustine, Torcoletti’s work is known throughout North America and Europe.  He has many works in private and public institutions; his most recent exhibition last month in Italy.  Torcoletti is known for his streamlined presentations of the human figure, and his work serves as a perfect complement to the other sculptures from The Cummer’s permanent collection that will find new homes in the sculpture garden.

The final days of The Cummer’s Landscape Enhancement Project are upon us.  Construction on the expanded Café deck is almost complete, the new awning at Art Connections is in, the Soga sculpture has been moved, and the final construction and landscape elements around the sculpture garden are being installed.  Now it is time for the Curatorial department to begin installing the inaugural exhibition, The Human Figure: Sculptures by Enzo Torcoletti.

Join us for live music, art-making activities, artist demonstrations and more as we unveil the new open air campus, including the public sculpture garden and its inaugural exhibition, The Human Figure: Sculptures by Enzo Torcoletti.  Food and drink will be available for purchase from Chef’s Garden, Corner Taco and Le Petit Cheri Cupcakery.
