Ela's Forest

Nov 16, 2019 - Feb 23, 2020
All Day

Ela's Forest will be on display at Polk Museum of Art at Florida Southern College from November 16 - February 23.

Ela’s Forest is a real forest of trees planted in locations around the world. It bears the name of a little girl who loved nature and whose short, beautiful life was radiant. The forest continues to grow as her community plants more trees to honor her memory and keep her light bright. 

As a member of that community, the Polk Museum of Art adds to Ela’s Forest through this exhibition featuring works by artists close to Ela and her family. It is meant to be an expression of love, support, and comfort to the family as well as a poignant reminder of the importance and power of community.

Polk Museum of Art Hours: Tuesday - Saturday 10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m., Sunday 1:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. Closed Monday.
