George Nock: Breaking Barriers
May 9 – August 20, 2023
The Albin Polasek Museum & Sculpture Gardens is pleased to announce our upcoming retrospective exhibition of the artwork of sculptor George Nock (American, 1946-2020), George Nock: Breaking Barriers. The exhibition will run May 9 – August 20, 2023. An accomplished artist and former NFL running back, George Nock devoted his life to the creation of realistic figures in bronze. Evident in his artwork is an appreciation of the human form, and firsthand knowledge of the amazing feats it could achieve. Whether sculpting historic figures, forgotten people, famed athletes, dancers, or musicians, he captured the fundamental nature of his subjects with a pose or expression. Nock’s career was tragically cut short by his diagnosis with the COVID-19 virus, resulting in his passing in 2020.
This exhibition is supported by United Arts of Central Florida and the Florida Division of Cultural Affairs.
