Monkey Business: Ruben Ubiera at Polk Museum of Art
Through Dec. 31, 2016

For the first time in its 50-year history, the Polk Museum of Art partnered with accomplished Florida artist Ruben Ubiera to produce “Monkey Business,” an on-site, large-scale interior mural. Ubiera designed and created a unique mural measuring 16’ x 24’ onto one of the Museum’s most prominent walls. Ubiera has adopted the gorilla as an iconic power animal for the current state of street art. “Monkey Business” depicts that gorilla finally at home in a respected art museum. As an homage to the community that made this project possible, Ubiera uses Polk County-related imagery to form the gorilla’s body.
Photos available.
