Steven Chayt: Some Call It Art

April 10 - August 7

JUST LOOKING/JUST THINKING, 24" X 48", ARCHIVAL INKJET PRINT ON CANVAS, 2018.

On exhibit at Polk Museum of Art from April 10, 2021 – August 7, 2021.

The Polk Museum of Art is pleased to present Some Call it Art, a solo exhibition by artist Steven Chayt. Conceptual to its core, Chayt’s work explores the various ways in which language and photographic images interact to provide visual encounters that are both humorous and paradoxical. Prizing ideas over the formal, Chayt’s practice pushes us to contemplate more than the literal object itself. Indeed, by challenging us to unravel the concepts that underlie each work in this show, Chayt provokes subtle “ah-ha” moments for each and every viewer.

Born in 1952, Steven Chayt is a practicing artist living in Winter Haven, Florida. Chayt graduated from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts and holds a BFA from Tufts University and an MFA from California Institute of the Arts.
