Summer of Love: Reflections on Pulse
Albin Polasek Museum - Summer of Love: Reflections on Pulse, 633 Osceola Avenue, Winter Park, Florida
A night of tragedy inspired a new exhibit, “Summer of Love: Reflections on Pulse” which opens at the Albin Polasek Museum & Sculpture Gardens on May 9 and runs through September 3, 2017. The museum is proud to host this exhibition, the result of an open call to artists to comment on the one-year anniversary of the Pulse nightclub shooting and the idea of love transcending hate. The response to the artists’ call proved tangibly that the world was moved by this horrific event and by the remarkable way Orlando responded with an outpouring of unity and an emphasis on inclusivity. Accepted artwork comes from many local artists but also includes pieces from outside of Florida and the United States. The pieces selected are incredibly diverse in medium and subject matter.
