Play Ball! Art and Sports
Thursday, April 22, 2021
In the time of pandemic, many of us have missed participating in or watching organized sports, so let’s take a look at how different sports have been portrayed in art throughout the ages. Looking at the history of sport through the lens of the artist’s imagination can teach us lessons about social changes as well as about the nature of sport itself.
Award-winning art history lecturer Janet Mandel visually illustrates the excitement, drama, and sense of connection to other human beings that sports give us. You will see some astonishing images by many of your favorite artists!
This program will not be recorded, so be sure to register through the calendar at www.wopl.org so that you won’t miss out.
