Brooklyn Dodgers at Ebbets Field

By Sady Sullivan

Posted on June 2, 2010

Through archives, photos and oral histories, Home Base: Memories of the Brooklyn Dodgers at Ebbets Field explores the connection between Ebbets Field, the Dodgers and the Brooklyn community.

This exhibition is curated by high school students from Brooklyn Technical High School, Cobble Hill School of American Studies, The Packer Collegiate Institute and Saint Ann’s School as part of the Brooklyn Historical Society’s Exhibition Laboratory (Ex Lab) after-school museum studies program. Ex Lab introduces high school students to the art of exhibition development: conducting research, selecting artifacts, writing text and working with scholars and curators to understand how to communicate ideas through an exhibition.
