Mennello Museum of American Folk Art
Mo to Sa from 10:30 AM to 04:30 PM,Su from 12:00 PM to 04:30 PMThis museum is housed in an Orlando mansion, once a private residence, converted in 1998 to show off the work of a single artist, Earl Cunningham (1893-1977). His work is considered "primitive genius." Cunningham, who was a St. Augustine native, attempted to capture the haunting landscapes of the Sunshine State. The Everglades proved a favorite subject. The museum's permanent 50-piece Cunningham collection was a bequest to the City of Orlando by collectors Marilyn and Michael Mennello. In addition to showing Cunningham's work, the museum plans a series of rotating exhibits. Call ahead for admission price and other details.
