‘To the Hoop’ at Weatherspoon
Among the Weatherspoon Art Museum’s extensive lineup of exhibitions and events this year, the “To the Hoop: Basketball and Contemporary Art” exhibition looks to be a slam dunk. Coinciding with the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament hosted in the Greensboro Coliseum this spring, the exhibition will explore basketball’s intersection with contemporary art and culture. The work of over twenty artists will delve into ways in which race, gender, and economics help to shape both the sport and the art world.
The exhibition will be on display from Feb. 1 to June 7, 2020.
