Posted by: Reposted by Central Florida Cities on Mar 2, 2023 5:32PM

The History Center’s picturesque dome takes centerstage as the backdrop for Bartow’s 52nd Annual Bloomin’ Arts Festival. The art show is hosted by the Bartow Art Guild and it features judged competitions in a variety of mediums. The show kicks off with the Bloomin’ Bike ride on Saturday morning and it continues through Sunday afternoon.
To coincide with the Arts Festival, the Polk County History Center is pleased to introduce the inaugural Festival of Writing. Explore the poetry and short stories composed by students from Southeastern University’s Creative Writing program. The works will be displayed on the doors of the galleries that served as inspiration for the authors. Digital Media and Design students created the display panels for each story. So, step inside and enjoy Polk County’s history from a new perspective. Following the display at the History Center, the works will be displayed at Southeastern University.
