The University Art Museum is proud to present the exhibition, Scrimmage: Football in American Art from the Civil War to the Present, which gathers original works of art for the first comprehensive survey of work by prominent American artists with subject matter that examines the quintessentially American sport of football, a sport which had its origins in the 19th century in the Ivy League colleges of the eastern seaboard. Following the CSU venue, the exhibition will travel to the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art at the University of Oregon. Thanks to the enthusiastic response of institutions and private collectors throughout the country, the exhibition brings works from major museum and private collections, and features works by important artists from the 19th through the 21st century. Artists represented include Winslow Homer, Frederic Remington, George Bellows, John Steuart Curry, Thomas Hart Benton, Andy Warhol, Robert Rauschenberg, and a host of others.

Through paintings, prints, sculpture, photography, and new-media art featured in this exhibition, football can be read as a cultural narrative that reflects attitudes and transitions in our country’s history. Significant artists have regularly depicted aspects of the sport which reflect themes central to American life from the Civil War period to the present day: class; race, assimilation, and integration; gender relationships and the place of women in sports; patriotism and capitalism; violence and war; public spectatorship; and mass-media/celebrity culture.

Organized thematically, the artworks in this exhibition illuminate and reveal themes that continue from the earliest historical images to the present day. For example, current debates about violence and long-term health issues were questions debated and explored by artists as early as the 19th century. The exhibition examines these artworks through multiple interpretative formats – text, special programming events, and an exhibition catalogue – in order to involve a broad spectrum of visitors in this important discussion.

Scrimmage is a truly interdisciplinary project; the museum is pleased to thank our CSU Team: Dr. Albert Bimper (Ethnic Studies), Dr. Robert Gudmestad (History), Dr. Emily Moore (Art and Art History), Dr. Constance DeVereaux (LEAP Institute), Dr. Nancy Jianakoplos (Economics), the CSU Marching Band, and the Department of Athletics for their support and participation.

Date: August 28, 2015 10:00 am
Cost: FREE and open to the public.

Celebrate the opening of Scrimmage with the CSU Marching Band and other special guests.

Gladiators: Reading the Concussion Crisis and Football’s Future Through the Visual Arts

Michael Oriard, distinguished professor emeritus of American literature and culture at Oregon State University, joins the University Art Museum for a public lecture in conjunction with Scrimmage. Dr. Oriard walked on as a defensive end at the University of Notre Dame, and earned a spot as a starting center. He left Notre Dame with a graduate fellowship to study literature as well as a position with the Kansas City Chiefs.

After receiving his Ph.D. from Stanford, Oriard joined the faculty at Oregon State. He is the author of four cultural studies of football (Reading Football, 1993; King Football, 2001; Brand NFL, 2007; and Bowled Over, 2009) and a memoir (The End of Autumn, 1982, 2009); has authored numerous articles for publications ranging from sports history texts to the New York Times; and worked with NFL Films, PBS, and ESPN.For Scrimmage, Oriard authored the catalogue essay “The Popular Press and the Beginnings of American Football Art.” Long interested in issues of brain trauma and how it impacts players, Oriard turns his attention to the history of images and how they give us insights into these important and topical issues.

The lecture is in conjunction with the Art Museum’s exhibition Scrimmage: Football in American Art from the Civil War to the Present.

Significant artists have regularly depicted aspects of the sport which reflect themes central to American life from the Civil War period to the present day: class; race, assimilation, and integration; gender relationships and the place of women in sports; patriotism and capitalism; violence and war; public spectatorship; and mass-media/celebrity culture.

Organized thematically, the artworks in this exhibition illuminate and reveal themes that continue from the earliest historical images to the present day. For example, current debates about violence and long-term health issues were questions debated and explored by artists as early as the 19th century. The exhibition examines these artworks through multiple interpretative formats – text, special programming events, and an exhibition catalogue – in order to involve a broad spectrum of visitors in this important discussion.

Scrimmage is a truly interdisciplinary project; the museum is pleased to thank our CSU Team: Dr. Albert Bimper (Ethnic Studies), Dr. Robert Gudmestad (History), Dr. Emily Moore (Art and Art History), Dr. Constance DeVereaux (LEAP Institute), Dr. Nancy Jianakoplos (Economics), the CSU Marching Band, and the Department of Athletics for their support and participation.

Significant artists have regularly depicted aspects of the sport which reflect themes central to American life from the Civil War period to the present day: class; race, assimilation, and integration; gender relationships and the place of women in sports; patriotism and capitalism; violence and war; public spectatorship; and mass-media/celebrity culture.

Organized thematically, the artworks in this exhibition illuminate and reveal themes that continue from the earliest historical images to the present day. For example, current debates about violence and long-term health issues were questions debated and explored by artists as early as the 19th century. The exhibition examines these artworks through multiple interpretative formats – text, special programming events, and an exhibition catalogue – in order to involve a broad spectrum of visitors in this important discussion.

Scrimmage is a truly interdisciplinary project; the museum is pleased to thank our CSU Team: Dr. Albert Bimper (Ethnic Studies), Dr. Robert Gudmestad (History), Dr. Emily Moore (Art and Art History), Dr. Constance DeVereaux (LEAP Institute), Dr. Nancy Jianakoplos (Economics), the CSU Marching Band, and the Department of Athletics for their support and participation.

The exhibition examines these artworks through multiple interpretative formats – text, special programming events, and an exhibition catalogue – in order to involve a broad spectrum of visitors in this important discussion.

Scrimmage is a truly interdisciplinary project; the museum is pleased to thank our CSU Team: Dr. Albert Bimper (Ethnic Studies), Dr. Robert Gudmestad (History), Dr. Emily Moore (Art and Art History), Dr. Constance DeVereaux (LEAP Institute), Dr. Nancy Jianakoplos (Economics), the CSU Marching Band, and the Department of Athletics for their support and participation.

The University Art Museum is proud to present the exhibition, Scrimmage: Football in American Art from the Civil War to the Present, which gathers original works of art for the first comprehensive survey of work by prominent American artists with subject matter that examines the quintessentially American sport of football, a sport which had its origins in the 19th century in the Ivy League colleges of the eastern seaboard. Following the CSU venue, the exhibition will travel to the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art at the University of Oregon. Thanks to the enthusiastic response of institutions and private collectors throughout the country, the exhibition brings works from major museum and private collections, and features works by important artists from the 19th through the 21st century. Artists represented include Winslow Homer, Frederic Remington, George Bellows, John Steuart Curry, Thomas Hart Benton, Andy Warhol, Robert Rauschenberg, and a host of others.

Through paintings, prints, sculpture, photography, and new-media art featured in this exhibition, football can be read as a cultural narrative that reflects attitudes and transitions in our country’s history. Significant artists have regularly depicted aspects of the sport which reflect themes central to American life from the Civil War period to the present day: class; race, assimilation, and integration; gender relationships and the place of women in sports; patriotism and capitalism; violence and war; public spectatorship; and mass-media/celebrity culture.

The University Art Museum is proud to present the exhibition, Scrimmage: Football in American Art from the Civil War to the Present, which gathers original works of art for the first comprehensive survey of work by prominent American artists with subject matter that examines the quintessentially American sport of football, a sport which had its origins in the 19th century in the Ivy League colleges of the eastern seaboard. Following the CSU venue, the exhibition will travel to the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art at the University of Oregon. Thanks to the enthusiastic response of institutions and private collectors throughout the country, the exhibition brings works from major museum and private collections, and features works by important artists from the 19th through the 21st century. Artists represented include Winslow Homer, Frederic Remington, George Bellows, John Steuart Curry, Thomas Hart Benton, Andy Warhol, Robert Rauschenberg, and a host of others.

Through paintings, prints, sculpture, photography, and new-media art featured in this exhibition, football can be read as a cultural narrative that reflects attitudes and transitions in our country’s history. Significant artists have regularly depicted aspects of the sport which reflect themes central to American life from the Civil War period to the present day: class; race, assimilation, and integration; gender relationships and the place of women in sports; patriotism and capitalism; violence and war; public spectatorship; and mass-media/celebrity culture.

Organized thematically, the artworks in this exhibition illuminate and reveal themes that continue from the earliest historical images to the present day. For example, current debates about violence and long-term health issues were questions debated and explored by artists as early as the 19th century. The exhibition examines these artworks through multiple interpretative formats – text, special programming events, and an exhibition catalogue – in order to involve a broad spectrum of visitors in this important discussion.

Scrimmage is a truly interdisciplinary project; the museum is pleased to thank our CSU Team: Dr. Albert Bimper (Ethnic Studies), Dr. Robert Gudmestad (History), Dr. Emily Moore (Art and Art History), Dr. Constance DeVereaux (LEAP Institute), Dr. Nancy Jianakoplos (Economics), the CSU Marching Band, and the Department of Athletics for their support and participation.

The University Art Museum is proud to present the exhibition, Scrimmage: Football in American Art from the Civil War to the Present, which gathers original works of art for the first comprehensive survey of work by prominent American artists with subject matter that examines the quintessentially American sport of football, a sport which had its origins in the 19th century in the Ivy League colleges of the eastern seaboard. Following the CSU venue, the exhibition will travel to the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art at the University of Oregon. Thanks to the enthusiastic response of institutions and private collectors throughout the country, the exhibition brings works from major museum and private collections, and features works by important artists from the 19th through the 21st century. Artists represented include Winslow Homer, Frederic Remington, George Bellows, John Steuart Curry, Thomas Hart Benton, Andy Warhol, Robert Rauschenberg, and a host of others.

Through paintings, prints, sculpture, photography, and new-media art featured in this exhibition, football can be read as a cultural narrative that reflects attitudes and transitions in our country’s history. Significant artists have regularly depicted aspects of the sport which reflect themes central to American life from the Civil War period to the present day: class; race, assimilation, and integration; gender relationships and the place of women in sports; patriotism and capitalism; violence and war; public spectatorship; and mass-media/celebrity culture.

Organized thematically, the artworks in this exhibition illuminate and reveal themes that continue from the earliest historical images to the present day. For example, current debates about violence and long-term health issues were questions debated and explored by artists as early as the 19th century. The exhibition examines these artworks through multiple interpretative formats – text, special programming events, and an exhibition catalogue – in order to involve a broad spectrum of visitors in this important discussion.
