APEX GALLERY TALK AND RECEPTION TO BE HELD SEPTEMBER 25
On Saturday, September 25 the APEX Gallery on the campus of the South Dakota School of Mines & Technology ( SDSM& T) will host a talk and reception in recognition of the current exhibition: The History of College Football: Seen through Historic Programs. Edson Bearg, an alumni of SDSM& T, has loaned a portion of his private collection of athletic programs for the exhibit and will be on hand Saturday to give a talk about the collection.
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.
For more information about the talk and reception contact the APEX Gallery at 394- 2481.
