Meandering around the lakeside sculpture garden of the Polasek Museum is reminiscent of the Rodin Museum in Paris. This idyllic location combined with the stunning work of Czech-born American sculptor Albin Polasek is a refreshing glimpse into the artist’s life, as the museum grounds were the actual of home of Albin Polasek. Enjoy the splendor of the sculptures. For more information, including an inspirational insight into the artist, click here.
“I am like a piece of rock which has been broken off of the Carpathian Mountains in the heart of Czechoslovakia. Later this crude stone was transported to the Land of the Free: the United States of America. This block of stone was myself. Through the opportunities that this country gave me, I started to carve out my destiny, to free myself from the rock so that I might be useful. No one knows the deep gratitude I feel for all that I have received. So if, as an immigrant, I have been able to contribute to some small part of American life, I know that I owe it to the opportunities this country has afforded me.” -Albin Polasek
