Hometown Teams, an exhibit that explores the critical roles that sports have played in our home towns and in our lives as Americans, will visit five of Michigan’s small cities to examine not only our national relationship with sports, but the local histories of each host city. The exhibit will begin travel in April 2016 and close in January 2017, stopping at each site for an eight-week period.
