Many might see sports and the art world as being world's apart- one discipline defined by muscle, the other by intellect. In reality, they have more in common than you might think. Much more. We are demonstrating that this summer as we present Who Shot Sports: A Photographic History, 1843 to the Present along with complementary exhibitions and programs to stimulate conversation, reflection and understanding about these not-so-disparate disciplines. The show, curated by Photographic historian Gail Buckland and organized by the Brooklyn Museum, features nearly 200 photographs from a wide array of sports around the globe, exposing not only the physical prowess of athletes but universal themes such as aesthetic beauty, teamwork and raw human emotion.

I attended a trivia night at the Allentown Art Museum and would highly recommend it. The Social Still was there with specialty cocktails, setting a nice, pleasant tone for the evening. The trivia questions were hard, but the staff and other participants were fun and friendly. I'd definitely do this again. Hope to see more events like this at the museum. The only difficulty I had was parking. Make sure you have change! Not all the meters accept cards and the app needs a $20 initial deposit. The museum staff were able to give me change in exchange for a five, so I didn't have to relocate my car.

Museum worth the visit. Very well maintained, excellent ulimmination, collections are very unique at the time of my visit they have the exhibit of Who shot sports? This exhibition have different pictures of athletes from different sports and background was one of my favorite. In second floor they offer a room to kids to be creative and do their art.

Every time I visit the Allentown Art Museum, be it with friends, young children, or by myself, the experience is superb! It seems that the museum's administrators and managers thought of everything - how to make it affordable for all, where to store coats and purses during the visit, and how to keep the exhibits updated and interesting. There are unique artistic benches everywhere if you feel like resting. The staff are always courteous and helpful. The e-mails I get from the museum are well-organized, informative, and sent at very reasonable interval. I always have this feeling that the Allentown Art Museum is in business to speread art and culture and not to make maximum profit from the visitors (like so many other places). I absolutely love it!!!
