Gary Wiren's great golf collection to exhibit in south Florida
Here’s something you don’t see every day: a golf exhibit at a center for the arts. In south Florida, however, it seems appropriate.
Well, that’s exactly what’s coming to the Cornell Museum of Art and American Culture at the Delray Center (Fla.) of the Arts. More specifically, it’s a unique golf exhibit from one of golf’s most foremost experts in golf artifacts, history and instructional aids, Dr. Gary Wiren. The exhibit, “The Seagate Hotel and Spa World of Golf: The Gary Wiren Collection,” will open Nov. 9 and continue through next April.
The Gary Wiren Collection is one of the finest private golf memorabilia collections in the world. This display will not only depict golf – its equipment, legends, events and history – but also the great stories that go with them.
“The viewer’s first image will be the beauty of the game, and the last one will be the enjoyment that comes from being a golfer,” Wiren said. “This interactive experience will be educational, motivational, and enjoyable… which all translates to a good time.”
We’re talking ball and club collections that go back six centuries. There’s also stuff like “Golf’s Greatest Trick-Shot Performers; The History of Miniature Golf; Golf on Comic Book Covers, and Golf on the Moon.”
There are also interactive exhibits, such as being able to putt with putters more than 100 years old. And there will also be fine art on loan from the Academy of Golf Art. This stunning display of oils, watercolors and acrylics was created by America’s most highly recognized golf artists.
Admission is $10, $6 for seniors and students. For more information, click here and scroll through the exhibits tab.
