This Fall, The Polk Museum of Art aims to continue what it has done since 1966: enhance lives through engaging art.

There is something about the start of a new season that invites growth. Fall season in particular always serves as a time to deepen your connection to the world around you. It is a time for both endings and new beginnings…for reinvention and for comfort. It’s hard to not think of a place more fitting for you to connect with these meaningful themes than the Polk Museum of Art. This fall, the Polk Museum of Art is hosting a handful of unique exhibitions that offer a collective and individual experience with various art movements and eras for you to encounter.
