As part of the new “Meet the Curators” tour series, join Sean Corcoran, Curator of Prints and Photographs, as he guides you through the exhibition In the Dugout with Jackie Robinson: An Intimate Portrait of a Baseball Legend. In celebration of the centennial of Robinson’s birth, Corcoran has pulled from the Museum’s collection some 30 images of Robinson and the Dodgers taken for Look magazine. Along with memorabilia, and rare home movies of the Robinson family, these stunning photographs provide a window into the media’s portrayal of this groundbreaking figure. Ask questions, give feedback, and learn something new with your fellow New Yorkers (or New Yorkers at heart.) A truly behind-the-scenes experience.
This is the third event in our new tour series “Meet the Curators,” which allows participants to delve deep into our exhibitions with those who knows them best.
