Arnold Schwarzenegger at the Whitney Museum

ADDPMP727

On February 25 1976 the Whitney Museum hosted the exhibition Articulate Muscle, The Body As Art. Instead of sculptures or paintings, three American bodybuilders were on display: Frank Zane, Ed Corney and Arnold Schwarzenegger. They stood before a panel of artists, art historians and writers, as well as thousands of attendees. Schwarzenegger wore skintight brown briefs and sailed into an imitation of The Thinker, drawing wild applause.

Sports Illustrated magazine reported that: “the event was inspired by a book called Pumping Iron” whose author “helped persuade the Whitney to organise the event and was a member of a panel chosen largely from the academic community to see and discuss the bodies of Zane, Corney and Schwarzenegger, not in athletic terms but as artists living inside their own creations.”
