Albin Polasek Museum And Sculpture Gardens says
If you love our current HANDS-ON sculpture exhibition then you don’t want to miss experiencing Inclusion Day! Switch up how you normally experience art and the world around you in this activity-filled day. In celebration of all of our individual uniqueness and in conjunction with our current exhibit, “Sight Unseen: Touchable Sculpture,” the Albin Polasek Museum & Sculpture Gardens announces its first ever Inclusion Day. The Polasek historic home, gallery, sculpture gardens will be FREE admission for this special open-house event. Join us for a memorable Sunday afternoon exploring what’s on trend in contemporary sculpture, and learn about modern approaches to art and disabilities. We believe art is for everyone, so bring the whole family and sit down in the beautiful gardens and enjoy complimentary, therapeutic art activities. All skill levels, ages, and disabilities welcome!
The VSA, the State Organization on Arts and Disabilities, will be showcasing their student’s work all day, in addition to the interactive sculpture on display in the Polasek Gallery. Come see the sculpture created by these brilliant VSA and UCP students, and see how their creations were inspired. A special presentation by VSA guest speaker will be held at 1:30 p.m. in the Historic Capen House. Participate in hands-on art projects in the garden with museum curator, Rachel Frisby, where you use the braille alphabet to create art to take home. At 2:00 p.m. members of The Greater Orlando Council for the Blind will lead a walkthrough sculpture tour and expose both sighted and non-sighted visitors alike to a new way of experiencing art. Try using a cane and feel the world of texture around you in this blindfolded, eye-opening experience you’ll want to try! Talk and describe what you’re “seeing” with your hands. Members of the local drumming group “Rhythm Metamorphosis” will give an informal drumming performance at 3:00 in the garden. Throughout the day, visitors are encouraged to FEEL the beat and patriciate with the group! Drum circles are a fantastic way to express your own unique rhythms and have fun playing a tactical instrument. Members of the Florida Sculptor’s Guild will also on site to show sculpture being made LIVE. Watch them create as they demo throughout the afternoon, and learn more about their process. Bring a camera and your friends and family for this special open-house celebrating our senses!
