Polk Museum of Art
Claire Orologas is the Executive Director of the Polk Museum of Art, a Smithsonian Affiliate and the only nationally accredited art museum in Polk County. She came to the Museum from the Smithsonian Institution.
The Polk Museum of Art improves the lives of our varied communities by bringing people and art together. The Museum’s outreach programs have an important educational and social impact, and its MIDFLORIDA Mayfaire-by-the-Lake fine art festival is ranked 64th in the nation. A 2014 study completed by Florida Southern College calculates the Museum’s economic impact in Lakeland at $12,693,558, with each $1 spent by the Polk Museum of Art worth $6.68 in economic impact.
