Multimedia exhibit celebrating America’s love of sports open to the general public for viewing now through September 28th at the College’s North Hudson Higher Education Center; special appearances and events are also scheduled in connection with the exhibit.
August 20, 2014, Jersey City, NJ – A traveling exhibit that celebrates America’s love of all sports, and the ways local team spirit shapes culture, will be on display at Hudson County Community College (HCCC) North Hudson Higher Education Center now through September 28, 2014.
The Museum on Main Street Program – the Smithsonian Institution’s Traveling Exhibit Service – is presenting Hometown Teams: How Sports Shape America, in partnership with the New Jersey Council for the Humanities. The exhibit, which features photographs, memorabilia, and artifacts that tell the story of people interacting with their favorite sports, has been available for viewing at only four other venues in New Jersey –Yogi Berra Museum and Learning Center (Little Falls/Montclair), Noyes Arts Garage at Stockton College/Atlantic City Free Public Library, Howell Living History Farm (Titusville), and Bridgeton Public Library. Hudson County Community College is the only county college to be included in the exhibit’s New Jersey itinerary. Four other states have also been chosen to premiere the exhibition, which eventually will make its way through 180 small towns in 30 states over the next five years.
The legacy of the ’56-57 Dodgers and the time during those seasons that they spent at Jersey City’s Roosevelt Stadium will be discussed today, Tuesday 9/16/2014 at 6:30 p.m. at the Hudson County Community College North Hudson Higher Education Center. The discussion, is part of the College’s Hometown Teams Series, and will be held in the Center’s multipurpose room. It features artist Paul Lempa, who will also showcase paintings covering this era, and journalist Jim Hague.
