Being born in Czechoslovakia, Polasek was an immigrant to this country. After studying in Rome, Pennsylvania, and Chicago he choose Winter Park to be his final destination. Eventually turning his home into the museum and gardens that house over 200 of this prolific artists work. having a rough background, Polasek choose for admission to be free to give appreciation to the spirit that he was met with when he came to America.
In all, my research project will be about the Albin Polasek Museum and Sculpture Gardens. From his relationship with the world to its affect on the area, he serves as a superior model of global citizenship. it was only his wish to pass on his love and appreciation for art into future generations.
