George Nock: Breaking Barriers

The exhibition will feature figural bronze sculpture, paintings, and drawings, including the clay formed maquettes for the recently unveiled sculpture for Orlando’s Lorna Doone Park: Barrier Breakers (2020).

George Nock: Breaking Barriers

The Albin Polasek Museum & Sculpture Garden is to host a retrospective exhibition of the artwork of sculptor George Nock (American, 1946-2020). The artist, a former NFL running back, celebrated the excellence inherent in natural forms and the accomplishments of exceptional figures in their respective pursuits. The spirit of music and movement resonant in Nock’s sculpted and painted depictions of musicians, dancers, athletes, warriors, and animals. Nock’s career was tragically cut short by his diagnosis with the COVID-19 virus, passing in 2020.

The exhibition will feature figural bronze sculpture, paintings, and drawings, including the clay formed maquettes for the recently unveiled sculpture for Orlando’s Lorna Doone Park: Barrier Breakers (2020). Commissioned by the Edward E. Haddock Jr. Family Foundation, the Barrier Breakers monument honors the players involved in the first interracial little league baseball game played in the south.

Artwork will be available for purchase with proceeds to benefit the George & Mary Nock Foundation and the hosting museum.
