Virtual Curator Spotlight: Babe Ruth: His Life and Legend
Tuesday, July 14, 2020 - 3:00pm
George Herman Ruth overshadowed the game – and remains to this day the very essence of baseball. His career, on and off the field, made him one of the most famous Americans to have ever lived. In our popular exhibit, Babe Ruth: His Life and Legend we explore how Ruth became the first star of a world where virtually every citizen could share in common media experiences. The Museum’s exhibit gives visitors the chance to encounter Ruth’s grandeur in the words of the people who saw it, giving you a first-hand sense of his legend.
This experience will give our virtual visitors the unique opportunity to learn about the creation process behind our exhibit featuring a special interview with a Hall of Fame curator.
