‘Spring Training: People, Places, Play’ Celebrates the Connection Between Sports and Land
Linda Ruth Tosetti, granddaughter of baseball legend Babe Ruth, will make a special appearance at the opening reception of D&R Greenway Land Trust’s newest exhibition, Spring Training: People, Places, Play. Internationally renowned sports artist and D&R Greenway Trustee James Fiorentino will unveil his newest portrait, “The Great Bambino,” evoking that legendary Yankee outfielder/pitcher and Hall of Famer. Original digital prints of this work, signed by both Tosetti and Fiorentino, will be for sale to support the mission of D&R Greenway. Both guests will share their perspectives on Ruth, 7-time World Series champion. Multi-media artwork of sailing, swimming, strolling, fishing, hiking, kayaking and beyond is exhibited by Hana Aviv, Lisa Budd, Kate Leigh Cutler, Mike Dziomba, Bernie Hubert, Sean Kane, Jack Quinn, Laura Renner and Ewa Zeller.
