THIS SIGNIFICANT SERIES BY A MASTER ARTIST NEEDS YOUR HELP
Albin Polasek was commissioned to create around forty works of religious art for St. Cecilia Cathedral in Omaha, Nebraska, beginning in 1939. These works included the fourteen Stations of the Cross that took Polasek nearly three years to complete. A devout Roman Catholic, Polasek made personal castings of the Stations in fiberglass for his home in Winter Park in 1064.
Over the decades, these castings have deteriorated to the point where they now represent the museum’s top conservation priority.
Eleven of the fourteen Stations have successfully been cast in lasting bronze. The remaining three fiberglass Stations are in very poor condition and desperately need conservation. This is a naming opportunity and a chance to honor a loved one or leave your permanent mark on the museum.
