Rolling into more media coverage, we pass the baton to Channel 5 Twin Cities Live and sports news anchor Joe Schmit for a visit to the museum as they share stories with curator David Little.  The intimacy in these images of players’ lives reveal moments of strength and fragility.  We may no longer see personal photographs of contemporary stars in recovery like the ones Stanley Kubrick shot of boxer Rocky Graziano.  Pictures of icons Babe Ruth and Kirby Puckett illuminate the highs and lows which affected not only the players, but their communities.

Go for the gold and visit the free companion exhibition, as well.  The Sports Show:  Sports Memories flickr pool continues its rotation of our community’s own sports pictures outside Gallery 365′s The Sports Show: Minnesota.


Slip on your ballet slippers and pirouette over to the MIA!  Tickets are available (free for members) through May 13th.  Don’t miss a piece of the action with these sporty works by Martin Munkacsi, Andreas Gursky, Roger Welch, Kota Ezawa, Tim Davis and more.
