This museum exhibits two painters - Earl Cunningham who lived and worked in St Augustine. His style is naïve, peaceful, refreshing. - Dale Kennington, a painter born in Savannah GA, who in her figurative approach depicts some scenes of current life. It takes about 30 to 45 min to see everything. This museum is located near the Orlando Museum of... More

The Menello is a small museum just north of downtown Orlando that is a pleasant break from the usual hot, noisy Central Florida attractions. In addition to its "colorful" folk art paintings by Earl Cunningham on permanent display, the museum features annual exhibits based on themes. 2015 is for women artists and the first go-round of paintings by Dale Kennington...

Took a couple of hours to visit the gardens and the museum. The Earl Cunningham exhibition is interesting and reveling. I didn't knew much of the artist but had seen photos of his fork art. It was wonderful to see so many of his pieces. As it always is, the effect is better in person. The colors and scenes are... More

I am a student at Florida State College of Jacksonville and recently took a course in Humanities: American Art which I enjoyed immensely. It was a requirement, not part of my major. Short story long... We were assigned a museum project so I chose to find an American Indian Museum in central Florida and in my research I found Mennello... More

The Mennello Museum of American Art is a little gem of a museum in a beautiful setting on Lake Formosa in Loch Haven Park. The permanent exhibit is a display of vibrant folk art paintings by Earl Cunningham. I enjoyed learning about the artist and also about how Marilyn Mennello acquired almost all of his works which inspired the establishment... More

The Mennello is a small museum in downtown Orlando, a part of Orlando that few visitors ever see. This is a young museum that is celebrating its 15th anniversary. During my visit, it had an extensive exhibition of "Art of the American West" and the paintings of Earl Cunningham. It was a wonderful experience. It is located in a beautiful... More

This museum has a permanent exhibit of Earl Cunningham paintings, a local folk artist, in half the museum. The other half is a changing exhibit. The current one is Southwestern Allure, paintings from Santa Fe, NM in the early part of the 1900s. These are wonderful examples of SW art which we previously saw at the Boca Art Museum, but...

There are only a few days left to see this great exhibit of Florida art and culture. The pictures and stories of Rob Sorter's Florida experiences were fascinating. Earl Cunningham's bold paintings of old Florida were amazing with the vivid colors and minute details. A lot of Florida history in those paintings. Eugene Savage's Seminole paintings were a lovely depiction... More

I went to see the display of Seminole Indian artwork and expected a collection of artwork by Seminoles, not two artists who depicted the Seminole life style. There was a very small collection of authentic Seminole clothing, jewelry, and toys, and I was very pleased to be able to meet the owner of these items, Mr. Reeves, and talk with... More
