Duluth Art Institute presents: Hat-Trick: A Celebration of Hockey and Art

Dates: May 1 - May 31
Time: gallery hours
(218) 733-7560 • Visit Website

Hockey and the fine arts may seem at the opposite ends of the cultural spectrum, but the two find surprising common ground in the passion expressed in each field’s players: dedication, pain, drama, fight, and fabulous hair. Both share incredibly rich cultural traditions in the Twin Ports and will be jointly celebrated in “Hat- Trick.” The work of Tim Cortes, a nationally celebrated sports artist, will anchor “Hat-Trick.” His large-scale, photo-realistic colored pencil drawings concentrate on famous athletes and sporting events. Paired with Cortes’ work will be a variety of paintings and sculptures that celebrate hockey including an art making piece that the audience can engage in, designed by DAI Executive & Artistic Director Anne Dugan, will also be part of the experience. Held at 506 West Michigan Street.

Dates: May 1 - May 31
Time: gallery hours
(218) 733-7560 • Visit Website

“Team Spirit” will present several three-dimensional installations by Jen Dietrich and Robb Quisling, Their work investigates a variety of sports and often includes elements of sound and smell, contorting the viewer to participate in the game. Work on view will include: * A variety of distilled, sports-related smells presented as colognes such as the leather of a used baseball glove potentially triggering memories; * A “Trainer’s Table” installation with shredded gear; * Rock-climbing holds made in resin (the same material used at Vertical Endeavors) and shaped like various human body parts, which gallery visitors can grab as rock climbers would, pushing boundaries of comfort interacting with other bodies; * A video projection of NFL tackles, coupled with gentler music; * A large-scale painting some three feet tall of a hockey face-off spot, coated in wax to mimic ice and with evidence of scratching on the surface, paired with an actual puck waiting to fall on the piece; * A wall hanging created with turf; * A rubber relief sculpture of a gym shower, standing eight feet tall; * Eighteen baseball gloves deconstructed and sewn back together into a single mass, with evidence of the athletes’ hands in the worn leather exposed for gallery visitors to touch.
