The exhibition Observations is street photography from the Polk Museum’s Permanent Collection.

The Polk Museum of Art’s website describes Observations as “an unusual collection of photographs that map the social landscape of the street.”

With each artist’s careful cropping, decisive shots, and individual style, the photographs in this exhibition show that the everyday thrum of the streets is anything but banal; instead, these images exemplify how vibrant the city world can be, tracing the human lives and behaviors that make up the daily urban scene. In Observations, we gain the opportunity to take a step back in time and see the lives of those passersby we might otherwise overlook, now through a new photographic lens.

Admission is free. You may schedule your advanced online reservations to guarantee entry.
