NEW EXHIBIT OPENS AT APEX GALLERY AUGUST 16, 1999
On Monday, August 16 the exhibition: The History of College Football: Seen through Historic Programs opens at the Apex Gallery on the campus of the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology. This exhibition shows the rich tradition of this truly American sport and how our culture, the changing face of society and even world events are mirrored in the art work that graces these programs.
Gathered from the most extensive private collection in the U. S. these programs map the evolution and development of the game from its infancy in the late 19th century to the present. The exhibition will show programs in theme related sections that cover among other subjects, the earliest programs, ladies and the game, tales of the Nebraska Cornhuskers, South Dakota, syndicated covers, the “ Norman Rockwell” of American college football, Lon Keller and several other artists.
The exhibition will be on view from Monday, August 16 through Sunday, October 3, 1999. A talk by Edson Bearg will take place in the gallery on Saturday, September 25, at 4: 00pm.
For more information about the exhibit contact the APEX Gallery at 394- 2481.
