Traveling Sports Exhibit on Statewide Tour, Set to Arrive in Weirton in August


CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - A traveling exhibit on the role of sports in American culture is making its way across West Virginia.

The West Virginia Humanities Council is sponsoring a state tour of the new Smithsonian Institution traveling exhibit "Hometown Teams."

Officials selected six museums and cultural and community organizations to host the exhibit and provide public programs about their local sports culture.

The exhibit went on display at the Randolph County Community Arts Center on June 29 and will remain there until Aug. 9.

It began at the Parkersburg Art Center in February and then moved to the Larry Joe Harless Community Center in Gilbert and the Preston County Sports Museum in Rowlesburg.

The other remaining sites are: the Weirton Area Museum & Cultural Center from August 17 through September 27 and the Morgantown History Museum.
