In the fast-paced, video-centric world of professional sports, Philbrook curators Catherine Whitney and Sienna Brown invite visitors to take a seat on the sidelines.
This original exhibition debuts one of the Museum’s most recent acquisitions, a large-scale, graphite drawing by American artist Karl Haendel. Wishbone captures the moment Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson begins slipping past Cleveland Browns defensive tackle Shaun Rogers in a 2009 season opener. This meticulously hand-rendered, photorealistic graphic drawing inspired by a photograph freezes a fraction of a sports second into a 33-inch by 45-inch wall mural.
