In the 1970s artist Clayton Pond drove across America and noticed the rise in specialized leisure-time activities and how each sport has its own culture, vocabulary and even dress code that defines not only the sport, but those who participate in it.
This exhibition from the permanent collection highlights these pursuits as vibrantly rendered in Pond’s “Leisure-time Obsessions Series” and how, from drag racing to hang gliding, sports draw individuals into a cohesive whole through participation.
