Our statehood as defined by sports is beautifully fleshed out in this companion exhibit co-curated by acclaimed Minnesota photographer Tom Arndt. Beginning with images from the late 19th century, sections are dedicated to baseball, football, basketball and hockey, with sports such as roller derby thrown in for cheering rights. One killer image shows legendary golfer Bobby Jones sinking a long putt to win the 1930 U.S. Open at Interlachen in Edina. Of note are compelling, large-scale color portrait pairings of well-known athletes by Twin Cities photographer Katherine Turczan.

  • When: Sun. 2/19 through Sept. 2

    Where: Minneapolis Institute of Arts, 2400 3rd Av. S., Mpls
