With eight galleries and a sculpture garden, visitors are sure to find something they like on exhibit at Polk Museum of Art. Our rotating exhibition schedule offers a diverse array of visual options, from African or Asian art to contemporary art by national or regional artists.
Downstairs, visitors enter into the Hollis Gallery, our "front porch." Major touring or Museum organized exhibitions will be found in the two large main galleries: the Dorothy Jenkins Gallery and the Emily S. Macey Gallery. Pre-Columbian works can be found on permanent display in the Taxdal Pre-Columbian Gallery, and artwork by elementary through high school students will be found in the George Jenkins Student Gallery. As you travel to the elevator or stairs, browse through the Perkins Gallery where you will often find one-person exhibitions on display.
Our upstairs galleries offer a more intimate venue for viewing art. The Ledger and Murray galleries are often combined to showcase rotating exhibitions of works from the Permanent Collection. In the Marks Gallery, you will find works from our Student Collection.
