Scrimmage: Football in American Art from the Civil War to the Present investigates the history of football imagery by prominent American artists and photographers beginning with Winslow Homer’s engravings for Harper’s Weekly at the close of the Civil War and culminating with the work of contemporary artists such as Catherine Opie and Shaun Leonardo. The artworks, which represent a variety of media including prints, paintings, sculpture, photographs and video, attest to the fact that football has played a significant role in American cultural history for the last 150 years. Scrimmage is the first scholarly exhibition to survey football imagery in depth and to demonstrate that a multitude of artists have made important images of this quintessentially American sport.
