William Simpson Fine Arts Series
A Home Run for Bunny
William Blizard Gallery
Visual Arts Center, Second Floor, Blake Hall
Based on the book A Home Run for Bunny, this exhibition features illustrations that tell the story of a Springfield, Mass., baseball team in 1934, and its star and only African-American player, Bunny Taliaferro. The book, written by Springfield College School of Human Services Professor Richard Andersen and illustrated by highly acclaimed artist Gerald Purnell, provides a look into local history and an inspirational story of loyalty, equality, and respect.
