New Exhibit and Open “Call for Artists” at the Polasek

WINTER PARK, Fla. (October 25, 2016) –Our Museum founder, Albin Polasek, believed that artists have a duty to preserve culturally significant events through their art. We are proud to exhibit the work of contemporary artists in the Polasek Gallery and bring these new voices and talents to the community. In this spirit, we remember a local tragedy, which devastated and shocked the country—the Pulse Nightclub Shooting. Albin Polasek said, “It is the function of art to uplift the individual and to beautify their life;” and we believe this implicitly. Approaching the one-year anniversary of this horrific event, we choose to honor the victims by marking this date with a celebration of life, beauty, art and love. We say a resounding “yes” to diversity and invite the entire Central Florida community to keep love in your hearts and keep dancing! Now accepting submissions; all artists and mediums welcome. Visit our website to apply, http://polasek.org/call-for-artists/.
