CENTENNIAL OPENING NIGHT RECEPTION
On February 13, 1920, Andrew “Rube” Foster established the Negro National League in a meeting held at the Paseo YMCA in Kansas City, Missouri. The Negro Leagues would operate for 40 years changing America’s pastime and America too.
On the 100th anniversary of that historic occasion, the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum (NLBM) will launch a year-long Centennial Celebration with an opening night reception to reveal a new exhibit entitled, “Black Baseball in Living Color: The Art of Graig Kriendler.” The exhibit includes more than 200 of Kreinder’s remarkable Color Studies of legendary Negro Leaguers and early-era Black and Hispanic baseball players. The exhibit also features artist Monty Sheldon’s acclaimed hand-painted baseballs, called Artballs, and other rare artifacts on loan from historian Jay Caldwell.
Only 100 Tickets Available. Proceeds Benefit The Negro Leagues Baseball Museum
