Who's Got Game?

Exhibition Website

Dec 9 2016 - Sep 17 2017

Who's Got Game? is an exhibition that will honor the accomplishments of Asian Pacific Americans in sports, and explore the role of sports in APA identities and communities.

From schoolyard games to national championships, from pre-war baseball leagues to this year’s X Games, the exhibition will follow the personal journeys of APA athletes representing a wide range of sports, ethnic and cultural identities, genders, and generations. These personal stories will come alive through photographs, oral histories, and memorabilia -- as well as opportunities for visitors to participate and play.

The exhibition will feature interactives, such a baseball pitching frame, modeled after the Seattle Times’ “Old Woody” pitching contest; a hopscotch and balance board; a Game Face photo booth; and a station to write fan letters.

Visitors will be also able to:

  • Physically play games like hopscotch to show the universal important of play and how it connects people across boundaries
  • Explore the wide range of sports played by Asian Pacific American communities, whether as hobbies, careers or even as a way out of poverty
  • Examine the internal and external obstacles faced by Asian Pacific American athletes
  • Learn more about iconic athletes who had to pave the way and are role models today
  • Take away lessons learned from sports, including team work, perseverance, risk-taking and other values
  • Add their own life lessons and nominate someone to the exhibition’s Hall of Fame
