Murray and Ledger Galleries

The spring of 2011 will mark the end of Montessori Middle School’s first year of holding classes at Polk Museum of Art. To mark this occasion, PMoA offers these students an opportunity to participate in deciding what is displayed in two galleries. The 40 students have been divided into pairs and will choose an artwork from the Permanent Collection. Each team will then provide their own commentary on their decisions. This exhibition will introduce us to their perception while also allowing the students to become more involved with the curatorial processes at PMoA. These ‘young curators’ are sure to impress and add a new perspective to the exhibition experience.
