Description: Coinciding with the projected opening of the new Polar Park Stadium in spring 2021, a groundbreaking exhibition at WAM will focus on one of the most recognizable garments in American culture: the baseball jersey. Inspired by the move of the Boston Red Sox's Triple-A Affiliate to Worcester, "The Iconic Jersey: Baseball x Fashion" will feature over 35 historic and contemporary jerseys and baseball-inspired fashion to trace the development, experimentation, and dissemination of the iconic American-style baseball shirt in the sport, on the runway, and in everyday life.

This exhibition is made possible through the generous support from the Fletcher Foundation. Additional support is provided by the Arthur M. and Martha R. Pappas Foundation, Bill and Joan Alfond Foundation, Lunder Foundation-Peter and Paula Lunder family, Murray Family Charitable Foundation, Larry and Stacey Lucchino, Renee and James Skeffington, Jr., Cynthia L. Strauss and Harry A. Sherr, and an anonymous donor. This project is also funded in part by the Don and Mary Melville Contemporary Art Fund, Ruth and John Adam, Jr. Exhibition Fund, Hall and Kate Peterson Fund, Heald Curatorial Fund, and Michie Family Curatorial Fund.

Related exhibition programming is supported by the Bernard G. and Louise B. Palitz Fund, Spear Fund for Public Programs, Amelia and Robert H. Haley Memorial Lecture Fund, and Burrow Movie Fund.

Exhibition sponsored by: Samuel Adams, Country Bank, Gilbane, and Gatorade.
