Sports: Breaking Records, Breaking Barriers
The Smithsonian's National Museum of American History, Behring Center and the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service presented this special traveling exhibition, Sports: Breaking Records, Breaking Barriers. The exhibition is no longer traveling. The exhibition was drawn from the extensive sports and leisure collections of the Museum. Audi was the exclusive national sponsor of the exhibition.
Using objects, graphics, photographs, and a video presentation, the exhibition portrayed athletes from more than a dozen sports, focusing on their participation in significant events that influenced them. It brought sports history together with American history to show how individuals of ability, courage and integrity changed their sport, their community and their country.
