The Intersection of Sports, Art & Culture

March 15 @ 12:00 pm - 12:30 pm

How do sports accentuate our culture and are there any similarities with art? Join Curatorial Assistant, Hina Zaidi, for a look into the exhibition Ways of Seeing: Sports and Games. Drawn from our permanent collection as well as exciting objects on loan, this exhibition explores the ways in which artists have been influenced by games across time, as well as artists who also competed as athletes.

On the third Tuesday of each month, Museum curators and special guests lead visitors on a 30-minute exploration in the galleries.

ArtBreaks are presented in honor of Joyce Benington’s twenty five years as a docent at the Birmingham Museum of Art. These programs, which bring curators, educators, artists, and creatives into conversation with the Museum’s collection and exhibitions, have been generously funded by Joyce’s friends, fellow docents, and members of the Art Focus group, which Joyce has guided through the BMA for nearly two decades.
