LAKELAND, FL.- Polk Museum of Art welcomes new Curator of Art, Adam Justice. Justice will be in charge of organizing the Museum's exhibitions with the assistance of the Artistic Programs Committee. He is also responsible for working with the Acquisition and Collection Committee to expand and maintain the Museum's permanent collection. This will include working with the Art Resource Trust, a group of members who actively support the acquisition of new pieces of artwork for the collection.

"After a national search, we are excited that we have found Adam Justice to be our next Curator of Art," said Daniel E. Stetson, Executive Director and Chief Curator of Polk Museum of Art. "Adam brings with him the exact skill set that we were looking for, along with new energy and enthusiasm."

"We were unanimous in our selection of Adam Justice, who is an exceptional art leader and educator," said Dr. Ann Kerr, President of the Board of Trustees of Polk Museum of Art. "He has an impressive list of accomplishments as a museum curator, and we are eager to welcome him to Polk County."

Justice graduated from Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Virginia, with a Master of Arts in Art History. He received his Bachelors of Arts degree in Art History and Museum Studies from the University of Radford University in Radford, Virginia.

"I feel fortunate for having the opportunity to become the Curator of Art for such a dedicated organization as the Polk Museum of Art," said Justice. "I am eager to help sustain the Museum's mission by applying myself toward upholding the educational and inspirational aspects of the arts. I equally look forward to becoming acquainted with and working alongside the entire arts community of Polk County."

Before becoming the Curator at PMoA, Justice was the chief curator at William King Museum in Abingdon, Virginia, where he developed and installed six to seven annual exhibitions. He was also responsible for all aspects of the museum's fine arts exhibition program. Justice also worked at The Anderson Gallery at Virginia Commonwealth University as a gallery associate and as an adjunct professor of art history at Rappahannock Community College in Warsaw/Glenns, Virginia.

Justice was officially hired by the Museum on November 20th and will begin working in January.
