Free Admission to Peninsula Fine Arts Center This Weekend

Posted on August 3, 2016 at 8:15 AM by Communications Department

Peninsula Fine Arts Center is offering free admission on Saturday, August 6 and Sunday, August 7. Located at 101 Museum Drive, Mariners' Museum Park in PFAC_logo_SCNewport News, the Center is open 10 AM - 5 PM Tuesday through Saturday and Sundays from 1 PM - 5 PM.

It is a perfect time to explore the Game On: Sports in Ancient and Modern Art exhibit where there is a little something for everyone. From ancient artifacts found in Mexican ruins to the video game gallery, contemporary sports photography to our new larger than life outdoor imagination playground blocks, the theme of sports is worldwide in art and has occupied artists from ancient times to the present.

The works on view in Game On depict a sweep of sporting activities ranging from rowing to wrestling, ancient to modern. Game On: Sports in Ancient and Modern Art will be available to view through October 9 at Peninsula Fine Arts Center. For more information please call the Peninsula Fine Arts Center at 757-596-8175.
