LEGENDS: the Sports Photography of Walter Iooss
September 21, 2019 – January 12, 2020

Walter Iooss (American, b. 1943), a longtime photographer for Sports Illustrated Magazine, has been called the “poet laureate of sports,” capturing the thrill, triumph and complexity of athletes in motion. This exhibition of more than 60 photographs features some of Iooss’s best work from the 1960s to the present. Documenting individual athletes and teams engaged in a wide range of sports, Iooss’s acclaimed photographs capture dramatic moments of victory and loss as well as introspective portraits.

LEGENDS celebrates such greats as Willie Mays, Muhammad Ali, Wilt Chamberlin, Martina Navratilova, Billie Jean King, Michael Jordan, LeBron James and Serena Williams, among many others. The Lyman Allyn’s Walter Iooss photographs are recent acquisitions, gifts to the collection from multiple donors in 2017 and 2018.

Knot Theory: Sculptural Works by Gilbert Boro
August 24 - November 3, 2019

Knot Theory is the latest exhibit in Lyman Allyn's Near :: New contemporary series. Gilbert Boro is a sculptor, architect, educator, and international design consultant, whose sculptures focus on the interplay of space, place, and scale. As the name suggests, Knot Theory will highlight Boro's metal knot sculptures, exploring their intricate shapes and figures.

The exhibition will be on view in Glassenberg Gallery, and on the museum's grounds.

Brought to Light: European Paintings from the Collection
September 20, 2019

This exhibition showcases the Lyman Allyn’s collection of European paintings, highlighting a selection of portraits, history paintings, religious scenes, landscapes, still-lifes, and genre scenes from the early Renaissance through the 19th century. Although European paintings have been part of the collection since the museum’s founding in 1932, the galleries currently emphasize American art, with European paintings infrequently on view.

Brought to Light offers the opportunity to reexamine the museum’s European paintings and share their rich stories with the public. The paintings reflect research and consultations with subject specialists, with the goal of advancing scholarship and better understanding these treasures.
