The National Sporting Library & Museum’s exhibits celebrate equestrian culture.
By Halle Kaplan-Allen
Notable art curators and historians as well as field sports enthusiasts made their way out to horse country July 12 for an in-depth look at three exhibits on display at the National Sporting Library & Museum. Guests mingled at the “Evening at the Museum” open house for the NSLM’s newest exhibit, “Chukkers: The Sport of Polo in Art,” with experts such as William Adair, who curated the exhibit “Framing Animal and Sporting Art.” Also on view were pieces from “Endangered Species,” featuring art by local artist Kay Jackson. All three exhibits were sponsored by Mr. and Mrs. Clarke Ohrstrom. “Chukkers” is on display through September 30; the other two are open through late December.
