Sports and StageThese two entertainment arenas have much in common. The ballplayers and the showgirls are really in the same business — entertainment. The rules they live by and their purposes differ, but both perform under the lights and serve the public’s eye and dreams, and perhaps one could say, relieve the monotony of life itself. I think they are a great subject for paintings, great metaphors of our 21st century society. Panem et circenses.
