Super Sunday: Hard Targets

Super Sunday

Super Sundays feature a range of fun and engaging activities and special events for the entire community. Designed to engage all ages—adults and young people alike—Super Sundays take place once during each set of exhibitions at the Wex.

What better way to kick off your Super Bowl celebration than exploring the world of sports as seen by contemporary artists?

Visit the Hard Targets and Cyprien Gaillard exhibitions for free and enjoy programs that bring together art and athletics. As part of the festivities, we’re offering a free screening of Go Tigers!, a documentary about high school football in Massillon, Ohio, that ESPN called one of the five best sports documentaries of all time. You can also see a dance performance created by Ohio State dance student Dante Brown in response to Hard Targets. Hands-on activities include artmaking with unusual utensils and "game-face" painting.
