America's Game

Assigned to cover an art exhibition last week called "Art of the Diamond." They had a really nice exhibit of George Brace photographs, including the opening day at Wrigley Field and the planting of the famous ivy which now covers the outfield walls.

Dallas Anderson's 1990 clay sculpture titled "Phil to Bat" is displayed on the first floor at the Appleton Art Center's Art of the Diamond exhibit in Appleton, Wis., Thursday evening, May 15, 2008.

Seen through large, hanging, reproduction prints of 1911 baseball cards, Lawrence University professor emeritus of classics Dan Taylor presents his talk "America's Game" to an audience at the Appleton Art Center's Art of the Diamond exhibit in Appleton, Wis., Thursday evening, May 15, 2008. The two historic T206 baseball cards, displayed themselves in a nearby glass case, picture John Evers and Frank Chance of the Chicago Cubs.
