SCORE: Artists in Overtime is an exhibition that celebrates our wonder, passion, and fascination with sports and art. Fresh and original, SCORE explores the art of the game and the game of art. SCORE opens on January 31, coinciding with the Winter Olympics. The exhibition features local and national contemporary artists who take inspiration from sports as their subject, both literally and poetically. Consisting of painting, sculpture, photography, and multi-media installations.
