January 9 – March 3, 2023, the Musuem will be presenting its first ever public exhibition of some of the collections of the museum.
Recently while visiting the Pryor Art Gallery to view another exhibit, I had the chance to talk to the newly hired curator of the Gallery, Lisa Hoffman, and mentioned that I had an Electric Football Game Museum. to my surprise, she was familiar with the game, having grown up with brothers who had played the game. During the course of our conversation, I expressed an interest in exhibiting an “Electric Football Art Show” to feature and showcase some of the works of the very talented “EF Artist” that are a part of the Electric Football Community and some of the collections of the museum.
“This exhibit is a great opportunity for us to fulfill our purpose and mission of preserving the history of the game and also to introduce the game to another generation who mostly grew up with video games and have never had the opportunity to experience playing the iconic game that is still being manufactured today, some 70 years after its first introduction to the toy and game industry in 1949.” – Chris LeMay, Founder and Curator
This is not the first time that an Electric Football Art show has been exhibited in an Art Gallery. The first was held at the ADA Gallery in Richmond, VA.
Here are some photos and a Poster from that show.
The Pryor Art Gallery is located on the campus of Columbia State Community College in Columbia, TN. It is approximately 60 miles and about an hour drive from downtown Nashville, TN. It is open Monday thru Friday from 8:00 am – 5:00 pm and would make a great destination for a day trip to this beautiful and historic area of Middle Tennessee.
Pictured below are some of the recent additions to the museum that will be featured in this show.
If you are an “Electric Football Artist” and would like to donate or loan some of your EF Art for this show, please contact the museum. The National ELECTRIC FOOTBALL Game Museum – Contact.
