Where Sport Becomes Art

Posted on: March 15th, 2012

To celebrate the London Olympics 2012, the Ashmolean will display a group of bronze sculptures from Art At The Edge, a commissioned series of sculptural studies, representing different Olympic and Paralympic sports.

Each sculpture is cast in bronze and made by a different artist to reflect the cross-section of contemporary British sculpture. The works will be placed in the Ashmolean’s Human Image Gallery, amongst the Museum’s permanent collections. 19th March 2012 to 20th May 2012
