The Brooklyn Historical Society, 128 Pierrepont Street (corner of Clinton) has these forthcoming events:
This Sunday, May 23, from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m., there will be a doll-making workshop for children. Under the guidance of author and illustrator Timothy D. Bellavia, participants will make dolls modeled on figures from Brooklyn history. There is a $5 suggested materials fee.
On Thursday, June 3, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., there will be an opening reception for “Home Base: Memories of the Brooklyn Dodgers at Ebbets Field”:
Through archives, photos and oral histories, the exhibition explores the connection between Ebbets Field, the Dodgers and the Brooklyn community. The exhibit features the history of the team and its fans by digging into BHS’ rich Dodger collection that includes baseball cards, photographs of the field, ticket stubs, uniforms, seats from Ebbets Field, autographed baseballs, scorebooks from the 19th century, team photos and the famous Dodger Banner from their 1955 World Series win.
The exhibit will be on view from June 3 through April 24, 2011.
