Note To U.S. Open Visitors: The Art of Golf Comes To PMOA

Joe Logan alerts us to the great news that the Art of Golf traveling exhibit will be up through July 7 at the Philadelphia Museum of Art.

Best of all, it's a great chance to see a masterpiece:

The centerpiece of the collection is perhaps the most famous painting in the history of golf.   Titled "The Golfers," the 7-foot wide canvas, rendered in 1847 by Scotsman Charles Lees,  is set on the Old Course in St. Andrews and depicts a crucial moment in match between Sir David Baird and Sir Ralph Anstruther and  Sir Hugh Playfair and John Campbell.

Here's a nice YouTube video with some insights into the exhibit, a nice curator breakdown of "The Golfers" and some info on planned for U.S. Open tie-ins, including evening events all week which might make visiting during those evenings difficult.
