Shades of Greatness: The Art of Negro League Baseball

In gallery 360, an travelling art exhibit on the Negro League baseball teams of the 20’s, 30’s and 40’s is currently on display. The display, titled “Shades of Greatness,” is a combination of oils, mixed media, photography and sculpture. The works highlight the importance of the Negro Leagues in African American culture. This exhibit may be considered a larger extension of the small display that can be seen on the first floor of the library. (See the blog post on that display here). The exhibit has been up since May 17th and will close on July 23rd. Gallery hours are Monday to Friday, 10am to 7pm. If you would like to schedule a group tour with LSCC, please contact or call 617-373-5845.

  1. I also want to note that this exhibit is sponsored by the Boston Red Sox and the Boston Foundation, along with Northeastern.

  2. I don’t know there was a Negro League baseball teams during the 20’s, 30’s and 40’s. Shades of Greatness is a fit title for this display. I’m going to dig deep on this information… wow this was not in our history books.

  3. Was on campus last week, for residency. Could not find building. I have visited the NLB museum in KC; really wanted to view this display
