Stealing Base: Cuba at Bat

Tuesdays-Sundays, 12-5 p.m. Continues through Dec. 7 2014
Cost: Free-$5
Stealing Base: Cuba at Bat is a visual exploration of baseball through the varied perspectives of contemporary Cuban-born artists living in Cuba and the U.S. The arrival of baseball in Cuba coincided with the emergence of the independence movement in 1886, and the sport quickly became a collective emblem of national identity. Cuba’s history, filled with legends of pop-fly’s, strike outs, home runs, and curve balls, provides meaningful and accessible material for artists to create work with implications beyond the field. Appropriating their culture’s passion for the sport, the artists validate a basic Cuban understanding: baseball belongs to the people.
