Rev your engine for another lap….

Setting the pace, watch interviews of curator David Little and photographer Tom Arndt at the opening.  Rounding a corner, catch a deal at the STrib for 2-for-1 ticket pricing to see the show.  Leaning into the curve, a great write-up on e-flux describes how the show’s themes:  Leisure, Press, Race, Icons and Spectacle, move museum visitors through the transition of sports imagery over a century.

Relax with a cool down lap and idle in the free companion exhibition, The Sports Show: Minnesota in Gallery 365, and keep an eye on the action at The Sports Show:  Sports Memories flickr pool.  Remember to enter your favorite personal sports photo for a chance to win a free catalog.


Put on your helmet and slip on those shin guards!  Tickets are available (free for members) through May 13th.  Don’t get winded (remember to breathe) with these sporty pieces by Wolfgang Tillmans, Martin Parr, Andreas Gursky, Aleksander Rodchenko,  Stanley Kubrick, Roger Welch and so much more.
