“Hometown Teams – How Sports Shape America” is a Museum on Mainstreet Exhibition organized by the Smithsonian Institution Travelling Exhibit Service.
It will visit six locations in West Virginia this year and our own Parkersburg Art Center was chosen to be the opening venue! The kick off for this fantastic exhibit will take place with an opening this weekend, on Sunday, February 9th from 2-5 PM. In addition to the Exhibit provided by the Smithsonian, an integral component of the show is the local aspect represented by exhibits reflecting the tremendous sports heritage and history of Parkersburg and surrounding communities.
