Art and Design: Movement

Principles of Design within artworks from the Museum’s Permanent Collection. This exhibit will focus on movement, which can be defined as the way artists convey motion within the picture plane or the way they compose the image so that the viewer's eye moves around the piece.

Functional Ceramics

Clay is one of the most universal artistic and utilitarian media, and ceramic sculptures, bowls, mugs, plates, and jars have been created by almost every culture on the planet.

Japanese Textiles & Prints

Polk Museum of Art is home to a small, but beautiful, collection of Japanese textiles and prints, including several kimonos that were donated in 2006. This exhibition will include a few of those, as well as Tsukioka Yoshitoshi's master woodblock print series 32 Aspects of Women.

Florida Landscapes

This exhibition will feature artworks from the permanent collection that feature the Florida landscape in either a realistic or abstracted manner.

Art and Design: Proportion

This exhibition is a second in a series of exhibitions over the next two years that will demonstrate the role of the Principles of Design within artworks in the Museum’s Permanent Collection. Upcoming exhibitions will focus on Rhythm, Contrast and Movement.
