The annual South Florida Fair in West Palm Beach bills itself as Florida’s top rated fair. The 2020 event will Play Ball, Play Fair. Interactive and educational sports exhibits will pave the way as you stroll through the Expo Center. The Hometown Teams: How Sports Shape America exhibition, in partnership with the Smithsonian Institution and the Florida Humanities Council, will teach our visitors the cultural impact and importance of the different sports in American communities. The National Baseball Hall of Fame’s “Picturing America’s Pastime” offers a snapshot of the photograph collection in the Museum’s photo archive, spanning almost 150 years. Featuring work from photographers spanning generations, like Charles M. Conlon, Carl J. Horner, Arthur Rothstein, William C. Greene and Brad Mangin – along with many unidentified photographers whose images have been donated to the Museum – Picturing America’s Pastime captures the grandeur of the early game to the vibrancy of today’s sport through images in sepia, color and black-and-white.
