The Play Ball exhibition, curated by Rod Buffington and Mike Badger, commemorates great moments in baseball history, stadium landmarks and baseball heroes and teams. On display is a diverse range of media including paintings, wood carvings, quilts and more. Some of the participating artists are John Hanley, Vincent Scilla, Joel Barr and Springfield’s Chris Britt. The public is also invited to two events associated with this show, including an old-time baseball game played on the Edwards Place lawn July 3 at noon and a Family Art Night July 22 from 5:30 to 9 p.m. For more information visit springfieldart.org.
