Traveling sports exhibit on West Virginia tour

CHARLESTON (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.

It began at the Parkersburg Art Center last weekend and will stay there until March 15 before moving to other sites across the state.

The other sites selected are: the Larry Joe Harless Community Center in Gilbert, the Preston County Sports Museum, the Randolph County Community Arts Center, the Weirton Area Museum & Cultural Center and the Morgantown History Museum.
