About this Event:
Following Hurricane Irma, the Cummer Museum faced major losses including the destruction of their riverfront gardens. Join us on August 29th where we will be joined by Chief Curator, Holly Keris, who will share their story of overcoming the challenges faced after the flooding, and how they have planted seeds both in their gardens and in the community to reinvent their business. Learn how the Cummer Museum team is thriving by reengaging customers and driving new traffic through fresh, thoughtful thinking and outreach. Holly will be joined by Joanna Blinn, Director of Strategic Engagement and Communications.
