The Cummer Museum of Art and Gardens invites the community to witness the transformative power of light and color through “Illuminating Nature” — a magical outdoor experience featuring more than a dozen illuminated fabric sculptures placed throughout the historic riverfront gardens’ 2.5 acres. Only three more opportunities to enjoy the holiday light show remain. Illuminating Nature at Cummer Museum will be be open to the community for free on December 10, 14 and for a final viewing December 17.
Event dates are subject to change due to weather.
Illuminating Nature can be seen from 5 to 9 pm on the nights it is available. Advance registration for the general public is required, as occupancy is limited to ensure a safe and socially distant experience for members and guests.

Illuminating Nature is the highlight of the Cummer’s holiday programming and pairs perfectly with its current signature exhibition, “Rebecca Louise Law: The Journey,” a breathtaking, room-filling installation featuring over one million preciously cut and preserved botanicals, some from the Cummer’s gardens, all connected by hand using copper wire and hung floor to ceiling in strands measuring nearly 18-feet. “Rebecca Louise Law: The Journey” will remain on view through January 9, 2022.
Guests can turn “Illuminating Nature” into a full evening by dining in the Cummer Café (reservations are suggested), enjoying live music, or cozying up with a beverage from the specialty drink bar. Food and beverages will be available for purchase during the presentation.
Take advantage of this special holiday opportunity to experience the Cummer Museum’s gardens in an entirely new light.
