The Art of Baseball
April 17 through September 20, 2015
As baseball season approaches, the Concord Museum presents an exciting new exhibition, The Art of Baseball, exploring the many ways that artists have passionately responded to America’s national pastime. The exhibition includes nearly 50 works of fine and folk art from a private collection, as well as Boston Red Sox memorabilia from the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum and a private collection. Historian, Concord resident, and lifelong baseball fan Doris Kearns Goodwin is Honorary Curator. The exhibition celebrates baseball’s rich traditions, intergenerational connections, and all-American fun! Learn more.
Stimulated by thinking at Harvard’s Graduate School of Design, Modernism shaped the landscape of Cambridge and Boston's western suburbs from the 1930s to the 1960s and beyond. Architects such as Walter Gropius, Marcel Breuer, and Henry Hoover experimented with modern design, new materials, and innovative technology, creating buildings that fluidly interacted with outdoor space and took advantage of scenic views in the former farmlands of Concord, Lincoln, and Lexington.
The Concord Museum’s innovative exhibition, Middlesex County Modern, will explore the development of Modernist architecture in this region and its impact on design ideas, the community, and the environment. The exhibition will include models, architectural drawings, photographs, buildings materials, furnishings, and other materials. A rich menu of public programs, open houses, driving tours, and interactive experiences, designed for audiences of all ages, will accompany the exhibition.
