Come visit us!I is for Immigrant: Many of our most celebrated artists are immigrants. Albin Polasek was born in Moravia (now a part of the Czech Republic). At 15, he traveled to Vienna to become a wood carving apprentice and then immigrated to the United States in 1901 at the age of 22. Polasek is now considered one of America's foremost sculptors of the 20th century.
