MUSEUM TEMPORARILY CLOSED
12th ANNUAL WINTER PARK PAINT OUT POSTPONED
The Albin Polasek Museum & Sculpture Gardens will be temporarily closed in response to COVID-19, also known as coronavirus. This closure of the galleries will assist community efforts to thwart the virus and will allow us to protect visitors and staff. The closure will be reviewed in the days ahead, and we look to reopen the Museum as soon as public safety can be assured.
In addition, The Polasek Museum has indefinitely postponed the 12th Annual Winter Park Paint Out plein air festival, originally scheduled for April 19 to 25, 2020. We hope to reschedule or offer a modified version of the event later in 2020.
The Albin Polasek Museum & Sculpture Gardens will host the twelfth annual Winter Park Paint Out Plein Air Festival from April 19 to 25, 2020. The museum, sculpture gardens, and gallery will be free to the public during the week-long event. Twenty-five professionally-acclaimed plein air artists will paint at the Polasek Museum and locations nearby with art lovers invited watch the artists at work, view their recently completed paintings in the gallery, and attend free painting demonstrations. More than ten free instructional demos with the artists at the Polasek Museum and nearby locations will take place during the week of the event.
Artwork created during the Winter Park Paint Out will be available for purchase with a portion of the proceeds going to support the preservation, maintenance, and operation of the museum and gardens.
The festival closes with the Winter Park Paint Out Garden Party on Saturday, April 25, from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Polasek Museum. At this ticketed event, guests can meet the artists, purchase their work, and see the entire exhibition of more than 200 paintings while enjoying excellent food and company. The Winter Park Paint Out also includes free art education for underserved students and an emerging artist program to mentor an up-and-comer in the genre of plein air.
