Baseball art of CLE native Allen Friedlander to be on exhibit Dec. 13 at Baseball Heritage Museum
The Baseball Heritage Museum at League Park will host artist Allen Friedlander’s Baseball Art exhibit on Saturday, December 13, 2014.
All fans are invited to attend the event as it is free of charge and open to the public. The event will run from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. that day. Free parking will also be available.
Fans that have not yet had an opportunity to browse through the Baseball Heritage Museum are encouraged to visit the newly-renovated site and check out Cleveland native Allen Friedlander’s work.
“The Baseball Heritage Museum is at home in Cleveland’s historic Ticket House at League Park,” Bob Zimmer, founder of the Baseball Heritage Museum, said. “It is truly a magical place where history was made and the future begins. Imagine all those that walked the hallowed ground: the Babe hitting his 500th home run, the Indians winning the 1920 World Championship, the Buckeyes winning the 1945 Negro League World Championship, and so many more.”
Friedlander, who graduated from Cleveland Heights High School (1971) and Cleveland State University (1979), will be present to show off his artwork.
“Allen Friedlander is a long-time Clevelander and sports fan,” Zimmer said. “Allen’s pencil drawings capture the essence of the player and sport depicted in the photographic images from where Allen bases his work. The detail takes you to a new level of expression and provides an ambiance of its own.”
Friedlander’s artwork includes pencil renderings of Ty Cobb, Joe DiMaggio, Babe Ruth and Ted Williams, all of whom are Hall of Famers who played at League Park.
