The Mennello Museum of American Art endeavors to preserve, exhibit, and interpret our outstanding permanent collection of paintings by Earl Cunningham. The Mennello Museum of American Art also seeks to enrich the public through temporary exhibitions, programs, educational initiatives, and publications that celebrate other outstanding traditional and contemporary American art and artists across a broad range of disciplines to reflect the rich diversity of American art, while making it accessible to all. The Museum shares extraordinary works of American art donated by our founders, the Honorable Marilyn Logsdon Mennello and Michael A. Mennello.
The Mennello Museum of American Art was established in November 1998 to preserve, exhibit and interpret the permanent collection of Earl Cunningham paintings. The museum also offers special exhibitions, publications and programs celebrating traditional and contemporary American artists.
Owned and operated by the City of Orlando, the museum is housed in what was once the private home of Howard Phillips, son of local philanthropist Dr. Philip Phillips. It uses its multiple gallery spaces and four intimate rooms to showcase changing exhibitions featuring American art of all genres and time periods, including original and traveling shows.
Tucked away on the shore of Lake Formosa in Loch Haven Cultural Park, the Mennello Museum has undeniable charm. Part of the Orlando Urban Trail, the museum’s outside space offers walking paths, green space and generous views of the lake and surrounding nature.
