The Mennello Museum Of American Art

The Mennello Museum of American Art endeavors to preserve, exhibit, and interpret the Museum's outstanding permanent collection of paintings by Earl Cunningham (1893-1977).

The Museum's Cunningham collection was donated by collectors Marilyn and Michael Mennello of Winter Park, Florida, and was opened to the public on November 22, 1998.
