Scrimmage: Football in American Art from the Civil War to the Present

When: Thu., Aug. 10 2017

Are you ready for some football? Hosted by the Canton Museum of Art, Scrimmage: Football in American Art from the Civil War to the Present features 60 works gathered from collections at the Smithsonian American Art Museum, the National Portrait Gallery, the Figge Art Museum, the Denver Art Museum, the Rockwell Museum, the Museum of Fine Arts (Houston), Yale University and the Canton Museum of Art — as well as numerous other public and private collections. A multimedia exhibition, Scrimmage includes paintings, prints, sculptures, and new media by such legendary artists as Winslow Homer, Thomas Hart Benton and Andy Warhol. Scrimmage opens tonight with a free, public reception from 6 to 8; the evening includes a "Football in the Art Museum" gallery talk with Max Barton, executive director of the Canton Museum of Art, and Joe Horrigan, executive director of the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Regular museum admission is $8 for adults, and less for seniors, students and military veterans. Admission is free to all on the first Friday of each month and every Thursday. The show continues through Oct. 29. (Usmani)
