With the World Series come and gone, the Yogi Berra Museum is now engaging sports fans with public programming and a new exhibition devoted to basketball.
On Tuesday, November 13, 6:30 – 9pm, Basketball Hall-of-Famer Bernard King will appear in conversation with the Pulitzer-prize winning sports journalist Ira Berkow. Attendees enjoy a cocktail reception and preview of the Museum’s new exhibition DUNK! The Science of BasketballTM. Tickets are $125 and include an autographed copy of King’s 2017 book, Game Face: A Lifetime of Hard-Earned Lessons On and Off the Basketball Court. For more information or to purchase tickets, call 973.655.2378 or visit www.yogiberramuseum.org. This event is made possible through the generous support of the Blanche & Irving Laurie Foundation.
On Thursday, November 15, visitors can experience a NEW EXHIBITION Opening: DUNK! The Science of BasketballTM. The new hoops-based installation explores the intersection of physics and athletics in concepts such as hang time, jump shots and wingspan through hands-on, immersive activities for all ages.
“With more and more young people following basketball, DUNK! will be a great addition to the experience here,” says Eve Schaenen, the Museum’s Executive Director. “The exhibition is fun for everyone, and it will allow us to introduce a brand new education program to visiting school groups that brings science alive in an interactive and engaging way.”
DUNK! is on loan from Science & Arts Engagement New York. For additional information about the Museum, please visit www.yogiberramuseum.org or call 973.655.2378
