Baseball came to Austin shortly after the Civil War when Union soldiers first introduced this new game, and for almost 150 years Austin has enjoyed “the great American pastime.” From Little Leagues to professional ball, Austin has been home to hundreds of teams in dozens of leagues, forever making the story of baseball a part of Austin’s story.
The images in this exhibition visually tell the story of America's pastime in Austin.
Gallery hours are Thursday-Saturday, 2-6 PM. The exhibit is free and open to the public

An interest in providing a home to communities in need has a long history in Austin and Travis County. Whether serving as a temporary refuge for families displaced by war or natural disaster or engaging in activism to support the safe passage and resettlement of refugees around the world, Austin has provided space for new communities to flourish. Yet, refugees have also faced discrimination when claiming Austin as their new home.
Finding Refuge in Austin considers how refugees in Austin have grappled with these challenges and worked to empower themselves and their communities.
The exhibit is free and open to the public
