April 3 - June 12, 2016
The arrival of spring means one thing to many: the beginning of baseball season. Safe at Home: A Short Survey of Baseball Art celebrates America’s beloved pastime by bringing the excitement of the stadium into the gallery through the artwork of both local and national artists. Baseball remains strongly anchored to the identity and spirit of the American people, and the artworks in Safe at Home capture the soul and essence of the game. This exhibition, co-curated by Bedford Curator Carrie Lederer and Art Dealer George Krevsky, was funded with a generous grant from the Lesher Foundation with additional support by the Diablo Regional Association.
