Theo Wujcik, Kirk Ke Wang team up for 'Invisible Elephant' exhibit at Lakeland's Polk Museum of Art

An exhibition featuring either Theo Wujcik or Kirk Ke Wang would be compelling. Together, we have a must-see. The artists team up for "Invisible Elephant," which opens Saturday at the Polk Museum of Art, 800 E Palmetto St., Lakeland.

The title and over-arching concept are based on the parable about six blind men describing an elephant based on each touching only one part of the animal, hence giving six different descriptions. Which, of course, is a lesson on opinions being formed based on experience and perception. The artists have created new work independent of each other but thematically exploring their perceptions of each other's cultural background.

Museum hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday; closed Sunday and Monday. Admission is $5 for adults, $4 for seniors and free to kids and students with ID. Free every Saturday from 10 a.m. to noon. (863) 688-7743 or polkmuseumofart.org.
