This spring and summer, the Polk Museum of Art welcomes two can’t-miss exhibitions, including the work of one of the most celebrated photographers in the history of art.

Seen & Unseen: Photographs by Imogen Cunningham

The exhibition features 60 photographs by Imogen Cunningham, whose life and career traversed nearly a century.

Cunningham was a female member of the male-dominated f/64 group of photographers (think: Ansel Adams, Edward Weston, Willard Van Dyke) and left her indelible stamp on the history + development of modern photography. The exhibition will run through July 15.

In the Eye of the Mind: The Fantastic Realities of Steven Kenny

Inspired stylistically by Dutch and Flemish masters of the Renaissance + Baroque eras, the paintings of Steven Kenny are eye-catching for their simultaneous mix of the rational and the irrational.

In this exhibition of his work from the past two decades, Steven Kenny invites Lakelanders to enter his imagined world. Visit the museum now through August 6 to see Kenny’s work.

Bonus: Museum admission is always free.*
