The Cummer Museum of Art in Jacksonville Florida has a world-class collection and a wide variety of special exhibits. Ninah May Holden Cummer founded it for the benefit of the people of the region.
5,000 works of art include creations of Norman Rockwell, Thomas Moran, Winslow Homer, and Peter Paul Rubens.
