David Levinthal: Baseball is an installation of large-format Polaroid photographs that capture some of the most iconic moments in the history of baseball through Levinthal’s signature use of lifelike figurines. Babe Ruth’s called shot from game three of the 1932 World Series and Jackie Robinson stealing home in the 1955 World Series are among the moments rendered in the artist’s unique and nostalgic photography.

Organized by Marshall N. Price, Nancy A. Nasher and David J. Haemisegger Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art.
