Implementation of an artifact-based traveling exhibition, a smaller panel version to be displayed in baseball parks, a catalogue, a website, and related public programs.

"Chasing Dreams" will evoke 175 years of opening days as it offers a unique vantage on sport, identity, and American culture. It will be NMAJH’s first original, large-scale exhibition created for the new, landmark building the Museum opened in 2010. The 2000-square-foot exhibit will run at NMAJH from March 21 - October 26, 2014 (baseball season) and subsequently travel with artifacts to peer institutions in Cleveland, Detroit, Baltimore, and possibly Los Angeles, Florida and Louisville. The exhibition will include approximately 150 historic artifacts, images, films, interactive media, and opportunities for visitor participation. It will be supplemented by a scholarly catalogue and a robust microsite featuring exhibition content and educational resources, public programming, and curricula. A scaled down, weather-resistant panel version of the exhibition will be created for travel to smaller venues such as ballparks, local historical societies, libraries, and Jewish Community Centers.
