Program Description:

The Albin Polasek Museum & Sculpture Gardens is pleased to announce its winter exhibition, Lay of the Land: The Art of Florida’s Cattle Culture. The exhibition will run from December 11, 2018 to April 14, 2019 and is presented in collaboration with the Florida Cattlemen’s Association. Lay of the Land will feature art and objects presenting the culture of Florida’s 500-year cattle industry. A broad range of items will be exhibited, from hand-made functional objects like saddles, whips, chaps, and spurs, to fine art photography, sketches, paintings, and sculpture. The exhibition will convey the excitement of the rodeo and cattle drive, the unspoiled beauty of Florida’s native scrub and working landscape, and a culture completely unique to our state.
