The Rules of Basketball

The Rules of Basketball is rare pairing of James Naismith’s 1891 “Original Rules of Basket Ball” document with an exhibition of works by contemporary artist Paul Pfeiffer.  This juxtaposition of the authentic rules document and Pfeiffer’s works considers the sport from a historical perspective and explores the phenomena and spectacle that surround it.  With this exhibition, the Blanton Museum has inspired cross-campus collaboration that unites art and sport.

The Rules of Basketball is on exhibit at the Blanton Museum from September 16 – January 13, 2013.
