The sculptures that will be placed in Winter Haven’s South, Central and Virginia Miller parks have been announced for the 2015 Florida Outdoor Sculpture Competition. Every year, the Polk Museum of Art works with local cities to install new sculptures in downtown parks. This year, the cities of Winter Haven, Lakeland and Sebring are participating in the Florida Outdoor Sculpture Competition. The sculptures will be installed in March and remain in the park until February 2016.
Sculptures are selected by a committee of community members and PMoA staff. An independent judge selects the Best of Show, Second Place and Honorable Mention awards, which are announced at the public celebrations planned by the cities (tentatively planned for the last week of April for Winter Haven). The City of Winter Haven is looking for companies or individuals that would like to sponsor a sculpture for the year. A plaque will be placed with the sculpture for the year. For more information please contact T. Michael Stavres (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Travis Edwards (email@example.com).
