Play Ball! Baseball Art at the Bedford

The arrival of spring means one thing to many: the beginning of baseball season. Safe at Home: A Short Survey of Baseball Art celebrates America’s beloved pastime by bringing the excitement of the stadium into the gallery through art. Baseball remains strongly anchored to the identity and spirit of the American people, and the artworks in Safe at Home capture the soul and essence of the game. The exhibition also features memorabilia from the Joe DiMaggio estate and vintage photographs from the series Linedrives and Lipstick: The Untold Story of Women’s Baseball. The exhibit runs through June 12 at the Bedford Gallery.
