The Artists & Writers Softball Game in East Hampton takes place on August 17th 2013 – the showdown is in it’s 65th year. Until the game’s opening pitch, what better way to celebrate this beloved east end tradition than with a special exhibit at The Museum at Guild Hall chronicling the game’s history, stellar roster of participants, and their acclaimed works. Artists & Writers: They Played In The Game runs from June 15th to July 28th showcasing the artists’ creative talents off the field, as well as their sporting efforts at this annual event benefiting local charities. Game memorabilia through the years, famous works of art, vintage photos, news clips, photography, personal recollections, Hollywood screenplays, and best selling books from celebrity participants from the entertainment, publishing, and sports fields past and present give a glimpse into the eclectic artists colony of East Hampton and their participation on and off the field in the community. Notables such as Willem de Kooning, Franz Kline, Jackson Pollock, Kurt Vonnegut, Eric Ernst, Woody Allen, Ed Burns, Alec Baldwin, Carl Bernstein, Chevy Chase, Roy Scheider, Mike Lupica, Josh Charles, and many more notables are featured. This is truly a wonderful opportunity to view and touch history with memorabilia on display for fans of all ages. Don’t miss it!
