Golf the Galleries: Artist-Designed Mini Golf

The World Chess Hall of Fame is proud to be a maker and sponsor in The Sheldon Art Galleries’ newest exhibition, Golf the Galleries: Artist-Designed Mini Golf, on view June 1 through August 12, 2018.

The Sheldon Art Galleries presents a unique interactive art exhibit—a nine-hole playable, family-friendly mini golf installation that takes over their entire 2nd floor gallery space.

Our chess-themed hole titled “Mate in Four” presents a challenge by not only the obstacles of the chess pieces themselves, but also through a strategic chess problem integrated into its design. Players tee off on one side of the board and maneuver the ball around the pieces to get to the hole on the opposite side.
