How to Remain an Artist Once We Grow Up By Sheri Webber Seeing Leonardo da Vinci’s “Mona Lisa” requires a trip to the Louvre.

An important Riverside access point is set to transform access to multiple landmarks, including the Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens, the Garden Club of Jacksonville, River & Post restaurant, Riverside and Memorial Parks, and historic Five Points. A floating dock with four boat slips and water taxi access will be built in the coming months at the foot of Post Street, between the Cummer and the Garden Club.

Evidence is clearly visible in the remarkable number of oyster middens (large mounds of discarded oyster shells) that dot the coastline.
