At the Edge of a Petal: Floral Works of Art from the Permanent Collection

May 8 – November 14, 2004

Murray and Ledger Galleries

“It is at the edge of a petal that love waits,” wrote William Carlos Williams. Maybe not love in this case, but certainly a wide variety of lovely works of art from the Polk Museum of Art’s permanent collection. From specific flowers such as the sunflowers in the works of Faith Ringgold and Anna Tomczak to the more generally floral-inspired works of Louis Comfort Tiffany and Louisa Chase. Other works included in the exhibition are Japanese ceramics and textiles as well as works by Lowell Nesbitt, Miriam Schapiro, and Robert Rahway Zakanitch.
