We at Hemming Park certainly miss our Live at Lunch series. Now, more than ever, we need music to nurture us and lift us up in these troubling times, which is why we wanted to bring you some recorded performances of our talented musicians that perform at Hemming Park. During these days of social distancing, many of our musicians are without ways to support themselves. If you can, please consider a donation to the Hemming Park Musician Fund. And if you cannot give at this time, please share this video to spread good cheer.
100% of your donations to this fund will be returned to our artists. To donate, please Click Here

If you enjoy the public art in Hemming Park, please consider a donation to our Sculpture Project. Launching in 2019 via a generous gift from Preston Haskell, we partnered with Jenny Hager and her talented sculpture students at UNF Art & Design. Each year until 2024, UNF Sculpture students create three sculptures to be installed in Hemming Park for a period of one year.
With the 2020 installation occurring in June, the time is drawing near to say good-bye to the current sculptures and welcome to the next three. However, we’d love the opportunity to further enhance the beauty of the park by retaining the existing sculptures and add the upcoming student sculptures to the park. In order to do that, we need your help. The purchase and maintenance of our sculptures come solely from the funds we raise.
