About the Museum
The Mennello Museum of American Art, established in 1998, is owned and operated by the City of Orlando. This intimate cultural gem, located in Loch Haven Cultural Park, is just minutes from downtown Orlando and is housed in what was once the private home of Howard Phillips, son of local philanthropist Dr. P. Phillips.

The Museum includes the largest collection of paintings by self-taught artist Earl Cunningham (1893-1977), which was generously donated from the collection of Michael A. Mennello and Marilyn Logsdon Mennello. The museum also presents a series of temporary exhibitions throughout the year with local and nationally renowned American artists.  The museum’s Grounds for Exhibitions currently features two large-scale sculptures by internationally acclaimed artist Alice Aycock through 2018.

For 18 years, The Mennello Museum has provided Orlando and Central Florida―residents and visitors―opportunities to understand and value creativity through innovative experiences with art located on beautiful Lake Formosa that further connects nature, art, and communal gathering. Our goal is to encourage creative and diverse experiences with art that nurtures audiences while reflecting the dynamic relationship between art and society.

The Mennello Museum is located at 900 E. Princeton Street, Orlando, FL 32803.
