Home Base: Memories of the Brooklyn Dodgers at Ebbets Field stems from an innovative program at Brooklyn Historical Society, Exhibition Laboratory. Essentially, Ex Lab functions as an after-school museum studies course for motivated New York high-schoolers. Their work for the Brooklyn Historical Society, now on view, relays the highs and lows of the Dodger era in Brooklyn.
The students work through objects – photographs, uniforms, etc. – and oral histories to form a compelling story of a pivotal time in American baseball history.
