Special Programs Details:
Winter Park Paint Out
Professional artists will paint outdoors (en plein air) depicting street scenes and idyllic views throughout the city of Winter Park for the annual spring “Winter Park Paint Out.” The artists have six days to publicly create their works, which are then offered for sale as a fundraiser for the museum. A portion of the proceeds from the sale benefit the Albin Polasek Museum. An exhibition of the paintings will follow the week-long event.
A celebration of culture, learning and the dissemination of knowledge, Smithsonian Magazine’s “Museum Day” reflects the spirit of the magazine with free admission to participating institutions. Last year over 100,000 people visited museums on this day in all 50 states and Puerto Rico.
Czech Independence Day
In recognition of the creation of a free and independent Czechoslovakia in 1918, all visitors to the Museum will be admitted for free. Regularly scheduled docent tours will focus on Albin Polasek’s Czech influenced works. Refreshments will be served.
