Special to the Tyler Paper

“Fields of Dreams” an exhibition featuring color photographs of ball fields across North America and signed memorabilia from the greatest baseball players of all time, is on view at the Gregg County Historical Museum through Aug. 26.

The museum is located at 214 N. Fredonia in Longview.

The exhibit features 26 panoramic photographs of major North American stadiums and informational panels that evoke nostalgia and a sense of the American scene that is rapidly disappearing, museum officials announced.

These displays are loan from The Castellani Art Museum’s collection of stadium art by photographer Jim Dow.

Dow’s work is included in many private and museum collections, and his photographs have appeared in prestigious publications, such as The New York Times and American Photographer.

Also on view are over 75 signed bats, baseballs, cards and professional photos from the most significant and greatest players in baseball history.

This portion of the exhibition is on loan from Jack T. Buchanan Family, the announcement said.
