Shadows take the spotlight in new Cummer Museum show

At one point or another, we’ve all tried to make shadow puppets, twisting our fingers in front of a light to throw a shadow that looks like a rabbit or a dog or whatever.

A new exhibition at Jacksonville’s Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens takes that to a whole new level. “Anila Quayyum Agha: Flight Patterns” features elaborate internally lit metal sculptures that explore the link between light and shadow.
