It is ironic to think that an artwork’s large size makes it invisible. That can easily happen within an extensive museum collection; sometimes oversized works are shown less often because of their cumbersome size or the lack of exhibiting wall space. Polk Museum of Art wants to counteract this by devoting an entire exhibition to some of the largest artworks in its collection. The Big Picture will create an opportunity for the Museum to show off the size of its collection while giving our audiences the opportunity to view an exhibition of giants. This exhibition will include works from the Museum’s Permanent Collection by such artists as Hunt Slonem, Theo Wujcik, John Briggs, Gilberto Ruiz and Philip Pearlstein.
