Game On: Sports in Ancient and Modern Art July 9 - October 9
The theme of sports is worldwide in art, and has occupied artists from ancient times to the present. Sport has long served art as one of its happiest sources. Well before words, art recorded man's tests of strength and agility, his games and diversions. The works on view will depict a sweep of sporting activities ranging from rowing to wrestling. As leisure time and sports entertainment expanded throughout the years, artists shared the public’s growing fascination with sports reacted by incorporating the subject into their art.
