Future of Sports: Athleticism as Art

FutureofSports_10In the vein of popular pop-ups like the Museum of Feelings and Museum of Ice Cream – or the recent phenomenon Infinity Mirrors – an interactive pop-up art installation, The Future of Sports, opened in DC in October to explore the relationship between sports and art.

You’ll find it in all its insta-worthiness at 700 H Street NE, a two-story exhibition with interactive rooms, each focusing on a different sport including soccer, basketball, football, track, tennis, boxing, FutureofSports_5yoga, volleyball, and cycling.

Get sporty in 10,000 square feet of games: Shoot a basketball in the hologram basketball court; Throw a football in the football arcade room; Sink into the volleyball court made out of salt; Sign your name in the coloring locker room, and play in a graphic soccer room installation by local artist, Matt Corrado.

FutureofSports_3Even if you don’t feel like Sporty Spice, you can enjoy the first floor bar (offering drink specials daily from 4 – 10 PM) and groove to the DJ while you appreciate that this installation isn’t just about athletics, but how those athletics translate to art.

The Future of Sports runs until November 30th, 2017, open 10 AM – 10 PM.
