William Schaaf: The Way of the Equine

William Schaaf: The Way of the Equine

Root Hall
Open July 27, 2019 through October 23, 2019

A longstanding presence in the Central Florida art world, William “Bill” Schaaf is known for his powerful, evocative images of horses in his paintings and sculpture. The horse figure as an iconic metaphor for power, sensuality, transition, and beauty has occupied a dominant place in his visual vocabulary.  This exhibition organized by the Polk Museum of Art in Lakeland, Florida brings the vibrant work of this accomplished artist to Daytona Beach for the first time.
