In August of 2003, the NLBM made available to the public the first-ever collaborative professional art exhibit inspired by Negro Leagues Baseball. This critically acclaimed exhibition features 35 original works of art produced by 28 diverse professional artists from across the country that interpret the Negro Leagues experience on-and-off the playing field. Renowned artist Kadir Nelson headlines the talented roster of artists who participated in Shades of Greatness. The Reds Hall of Fame and Museum is proud to bring this unique celebration of the compelling and powerful story of the Negro Leagues to Cincinnati to mark the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Negro Leagues in 1920.
We have been closely monitoring the situation regarding the COVID-19 virus and the museum is currently closed to the public. We will continue to pay close attention to the ever-changing situation and provide any updates regarding our status when possible. Stay tuned for more information
