'Site Specific' at Polk Museum features Central Florida artists

The Polk Museum of Art's current show, "Site Specific," features Dan Gunderson and Barbara Sorensen, two Central Florida "environmental" artists, meaning they often create environments within galleries, though visually their work is quite different. Among Gunderson's recent work are kaleidoscopic assemblages of small toys such as one show here. Sorensen takes an earthy, organic approach. See the exhibition at the museum, 800 E Palmetto St., Lakeland, through June 7. Hours are from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and 1 to 5 p.m. Sunday. Admission is $5 adults, $4 seniors and free for children and students with ID. polkmuseumofart.org or (863) 688-7743.
