The Stadium and Spectacle

Aug 29 - Sep 21, 2019

Developed to coincide with the 2019 dedication of the Jamie L. Roberts Stadium at St. Mary’s College of Maryland, “The Stadium and Spectacle: The Art of Show in the College’s Fine Art Collection” invites visitors to explore complex connections through themes of competition, performance, and display. These themes resonate in twenty works from campus collections, some of which are on public display for the first time. The exhibition provides a platform to discover cross-connections in formal qualities and interrelations in subject matter and context of paintings, prints, and sculptures of artists like Marc Chagall, Salvador Dali, and Diego Rivera.

Opening reception: Thursday Aug 29 - 5-6pm
Director's Talk: September 7 at 4:00 pm
