“Teenie Harris Photographs: Baseball in Pittsburgh” a Hit (CPs Sun., 10/5/14)
1) The Carnegie Museum of Art is exhibiting Teenie Harris Photographs: Baseball in Pittsburgh from its Charles “Teenie” Harris archives. This exhibit, in the Scaife Lobby, features photo highlights of Negro League, Major League, Little League and sandlot baseball in Pittsburgh from the 1930s into the ’60s. Harris knew the subject well, as he was a co-founder and shortstop of the Pittsburgh Crawfords, a sandlot team that evolved into a mainstay of the National Negro League. Also on exhibit is a never-before-seen digitized collection of 16mm film shot by Harris of Negro League games at Greenlee Field and Forbes Field. The exhibit is guest-curated by Sean Gibson, executive director of the Josh Gibson Foundation, aided by archivist Kerin Shellenbarger. Harris’ still photos include pictures of Pittsburgh greats Roberto Clemente, Willie Stargell, and Josh Gibson and the Brooklyn Dodgers’ Jackie Robinson. 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. Exhibition continues through Oct. 12. 4400 Forbes Ave., Oakland.
