“The premiere museum of fine art featuring sport”
The National Art Museum of Sport (NAMOS) has a two-pronged mission: to encourage sport artists in their efforts to create sport art, and to collect, preserve and share through exhibits the best examples of sport art it can acquire. It does this through exhibits, educational materials and outreach programs. In carrying out this mission, NAMOS is a bridge of understanding between two worlds, introducing art to the world of sports and sport to the world of art. NAMOS has encouraged the creation of sport art and has collected more than 1,000 pieces showcasing the heroes and heroines of racing, basketball, boxing, baseball, golf and tennis-over 50 sports in all for over fifty years. Through permanent and special exhibits, this collection evokes the excitement and variety of a sporting life, allowing sportsmen and fans alike to thrill at the passions such a collection can stir. The museum's collection includes works by Winslow Homer, George Bellows, LeRoy Neiman and Ogden Pleissner. Johnny Unitas, Joe Louis, Michael Jordan, Bob Cousy and Helen Wills Moody Roark are just some of the sports legends represented. The museum is a registered 501(c)(3) organization, which relies on donations and corporate support to fund all operations, exhibits and programs.
