Jax Outings Project Makes Downtown Streets A Museum Gallery

Downtown Jacksonville’s public art is becoming more highbrow, thanks to a project bringing museum pieces out into the streets.

The Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens is behind the project it’s calling Jax Outings.

On a recent afternoon, Kevin Talisman was walking down the Monroe Street sidewalk across from Hemming Park. When he sees it, he does a doubletake.

“I’ve walked here, and I’ve never even seen it before,” he says.

It’s on an off-white wall next to an alley.
