The Cummer Museum's Art Connections is an interactive center designed to offer visitors the opportunity to learn more about and explore art with a different approach. The center's Picture Perfect activity area provides guests with the chance to create their own masterpiece by moving a large paintbrush through the air, meanwhile the painting is displayed on a large video screen. Behind the display, family and friends can watch and encourage the painters. Paintings can be printed out and visitors can take home their artwork.
The Creativity Timeline displays 40 feet of chronological timeline of art history spanning over 30,000 years. The timeline uses the Cummer Museum's collection as its core. Visitors have the opportunity to explore the relationship between art and technology, culture, and science from 35,000 B.C. through sight, sound, and touch at the interactive stations. In the Visions/Versions activity area guests view a drawing, a clay vase, a relief print, and an oil painting partnered with videos featuring the various artists discussing the techniques, tools, and inspirations associated with the media in which they work. These four different art pieces were inspired by the museum's gardens, and created by artists commissioned by the Cummer Museum. The exhibit is an excellent way for visitors to learn more about the creative process and how it differs between individuals.
Face to Face utilizes a touchscreen to offer guests a chance to create their own self-portraits. Theses self-portraits can be printed and taken home. The Cummer Museum also contains the Gallery Under Five within the Art Connections center, which is one of several exhibits tailored to children from 18 months to 5 years of age. The exhibit showcases are on a smaller scale so young children can explore the museum's art in a setting where it's easier for them to see, free from intimidating large objects.
