Sports Art

We don't usually think of art and sports in the same thought. They seem to be mutually exclusive, but that isn't true. The American Sport Art Museum & Archives of Daphne, AL illustrates this point quite graphically.

This museum was established in 1984 and its goal is to preserve sports history, literature, and art. The ASAMA houses over a thousand works of art. The collection includes photography, painting, prints, assemblage, posters, and sculpture.

The ASAMA also gives out awards yearly to artists and athletes. They are open to the public five days a week. The hours are 8:00 am to 4:00 pm.
