18 Apr Art in Athleticism: The Form and Physicality of Boxing
Monday, April 18 – Friday, April 22
Old Gym Gallery 479
Artist Desiree D’Alessandro, in collaboration with Raymond Douglas, embraces Old Gym Gallery 479’s sports and recreation history in this exhibition that focuses on hybridizing the fields of art and athleticism. Ten student boxers from the local community will be on display, alongside heavy bags and a full-scale boxing ring. Tuesday and Thursday evenings the space will be utilized as a boxing training facility where the featured student boxers make an appearance in honor of camaraderie and affection for the noble art of boxing. The show will close Friday at 5:00 PM with an exhibition bout — a finale that can’t be missed!
