The 76ers Crossover: Art Exhibition at the Fitler Club ended its run on Tuesday, November 19. The diverse and 76ers-themed art collective was full of stunning pieces, featured a trophy showcase, and contained many one-of-a-kind items. The exhibit highlighted more than 200 pieces produced by artists from 11 different countries. In a partnership with Conscious Basketball, a site that assembles and displays basketball artists worldwide, the immersive exhibition featured 76ers legends and talent from the current roster.
