The Hockey Museum’s art collection covers a range of different categories: from paintings to sculpture; from limited-edition prints to mass produced engravings and posters. It is currently a small collection, but one with tremendous potential for growth that already features a number of exciting pieces.

Three items immediately spring to mind. Two are oil paintings by Aubrey Sykes; one depicts two artisans from the Indian subcontinent hand-carving hockey sticks from wood and the other captures the Final of the 1986 Hockey World Cup, contested by England and Australia. The third is a limited-edition print of a female hockey player by the Spanish artist Jordi Alumà, donated to the Museum by FIH President, Leandro Negre.

Art has, at its core, the innate ability to engage the viewer, to tell visual stories and convey and stimulate emotion. It is able to bring vibrantly to life specific moments or whole periods in time. The art collection of The Hockey Museum has the potential to offer a fascinating visual insight into the sport of field hockey from its genesis to the game’s modern manifestation.

Every hockey-related artwork that the Museum acquires, no matter how small or seemingly insignificant, enables us to better embellish our exhibitions with visual narrative. In doing so, we will more readily engage the public and more accurately illustrate the many facets of our sport.

If you are interested in learning more about the different pieces of artwork that we have in the collection or you have an artwork that you would like to donate or loan to The Hockey Museum, please contact the museum using the online contact form.
