‘Spectacle’ exhibit reopens with renewed examination of life with – and without – sports

The New Gallery at Austin Peay State University, with support from The APSU Center of Excellence for the Creative Arts and the APSU Department of Art + Design, is pleased to reopen Spectacle to kick off the 2020-21 exhibition season.

The exhibit reopens Wednesday, August 19th, and runs through September 18th. 

Spectacle was closed early due to concerns about the spread COVID-19 Coronavirus back in March, but it has remained installed in The New Gallery. During this time of national shutdown and the cancellation of major sports leagues around the world, Spectacle, reopens to new conversations about the importance of sport and safety of large gatherings.  

Though gallery hours will be limited this coming fall semester, The New Gallery will be open to visitors with limited occupancy and appropriate safety measures. Spectacle also will be available for viewing online via a 360º/4k VR video walk-through experience. In lieu of an in-person panel discussion with the exhibiting artists, a pre-recorded panel discussion will also be available online. 

The exhibition will reopen to the public on August 19th and run through September 18th. The virtual walk-through experience will be available indefinitely.
