Polk Museum of Art at Florida Southern College hosts What’s the Story?: Art in Search of a Narrative, October 10, 2020 – January 17, 2021.
What’s the Story?: Art in Search of a Narrative Exhibition
Have you ever wondered about what is going on in a painting? What that daydreaming figure is thinking about? What story the artist is trying to tell? In this original Polk Museum of Art exhibition, visitors will be invited to use their own imaginations to look beyond the canvas, asked to envision the unwritten – and unpainted – stories in works of art with open-ended narratives. Featuring more than thirty works from the Museum’s permanent collection, this show places each viewer into the essential role of narrator, providing creative answers to the questions the art itself poses but can never reveal.
