The Mennello Museum of American Art, established in November 1998, is owned and operated by the City of Orlando. This cultural gem in Loch Haven Cultural Park is housed in what was once the private home of Howard Phillips, son of local philanthropist Dr. P. Phillips. Among the museum’s many treasures is the permanent collection of paintings by self-taught artist Earl Cunningham (1893-1977), donated by Michael A. Mennello and Marilyn Logsdon Mennello.
The museum’s gallery spaces showcase changing exhibitions of American art of all genres and time periods. The museum draws from the City of Orlando Permanent Collection, the largest public art collection in the state of Florida, and also is a Smithsonian Affiliate.
Tucked away on the shore of Lake Formosa, the museum has undeniable charm. The Sculpture Garden is always open to the public, and the walking paths merge into the Orlando Urban Trail bicycle and pedestrian path.
