FLASHING THE LEATHER (Art Exhibit)

Jun 6th, 2022 - Aug 20th, 2022 ·

Art and design have been prevalent throughout the history of baseball, from logo designs to baseball cards to uniforms. Flashing the Leather (a baseball term used to admiringly describe a dexterous defensive play) explores baseball as a point of artistic reference and inspiration over the decades, focusing particularly on the period from the infamous baseball strike of 1994 to the present day. This exhibition is running through Aug. 20, 2022, at the Alabama Contemporary Art Center. Flashing The Leather highlights works of art that address the rituals and concepts within baseball and baseball history, archetypes, and superstitions unique to the game and the use of baseball objects as an artist’s medium. Cost is PAY WHAT YOU CAN, Members and Children under 12 are FREE. For center hours and more information visit https://www.alabamacontemporary.org/about/
