‘Fine Art Tribute to Muhammad Ali’ @ Muhammad Ali Center

Through March 15

Muhammad Ali Center
144 N. Sixth St.
$9 ($5 students)

Contrary to recent rumors suggesting Muhammad Ali “could be dead in days,” the legend is still very much alive … and what a life it’s been: Though professional boxing was his claim to fame, Ali’s dedication to philanthropy and social activism is perhaps the most impressive aspect of his legacy. The Ali Center is honoring its namesake through an exhibition entitled “The Greatest: A Fine Art Tribute to Muhammad Ali,” which consists of 22 contemporary art pieces by 19 artists from across the United States. The traveling showcase is part of an ongoing effort by the renowned Sacramento, Calif.-based Evolve Gallery, which seeks to shed light on the many facets of Ali’s life. In addition, local artists Corinne Pondell Holt and Josh Mitcham will display personal tributes to The Greatest. —Sarah Kelley
