- Inside, a plethora of works is on display by folk artist Earl Cunningham. Outside, the lawn areas offers gorgeous views and majestic trees. This museum is housed in an Orlando mansion, once a private residence, converted in 1998 to show off Cunningham'swork. His work is considered "primitive genius." Cunningham, who was a St. Augustine native, attempted to capture the haunting landscapes of the Sunshine State. The Everglades proved a favorite subject. The museum's permanent 50-piece Cunningham collection was a bequest to the City of Orlando by collectors Marilyn and Michael Mennello. In addition to showing Cunningham's work, the museum plans a series of rotating exhibits. Call ahead for admission price and other details.
