Southeast Texas Sports: Hometown Heroes
Opening: January 19, 2019
Exhibition Dates: January 19, 2019 — April 28, 2019
What we need: Loans of items for the exhibition (uniforms, programs, game balls, photographs — original photos are preferred over newspaper clippings). Items should relate to local sports at the high school level — not professionals — we know we have lots of those! Some college items will be accepted.
Specifically, we’d like to focus on baseball, basketball, and football championship teams, coaches, and players in the Golden Triangle area (Port Arthur, Beaumont, Port Neches/Groves, Bridge City, Orange, etc.). The football section will include items related to band, drill teams, and cheerleading. We would also like to borrow items relating to refinery sports teams and minor league baseball.
If you have friends or family members who played on a Port Arthur team, we’d like to invite them to a special reception honoring past (and current) state champions in football and basketball.
Please contact: Sarah Bellian, Curator 409-999-6283 or email (preferred) email@example.com
In order to include your contributions in this exhibit, we must receive them by November 1, 2018.
