“great selection of American art”

Tucked away on a picturesque shore of Lake Formosa in Loch Haven Park, just north of downtown Orlando, the elegantly appointed Mennello Museum of American Art is housed in what was once the private home of Howard Phillips, son of philanthropist Dr. P. Phillips. The intimate museum uses its gallery spaces to showcase changing exhibitions featuring American art of all genres and time periods, including originally curated and traveling shows. The treasure of the Mennello Museum is the permanent collection of paintings by self-taught or "primitive" artist Earl Cunningham (1893-1977), generously donated from the collection of Michael A. and Marilyn L. Mennello. This collection of Cunninghams is the largest in existence, and a rotating selection of paintings remains on display. Owned and operated by the City of Orlando, the Mennello Museum of American Art opened its doors in 1998. A lakeside sculpture garden is another attraction and is the site of the annual Orlando Folk Festival, held the second weekend in February. When visiting, you may be welcomed by Red and Black, the museum's resident greeting felines. Both have found their way to hearts of patrons and staff alike.
