About the Exhibition
Ball Park Traffic by Kirsten Mosher (b.1963, La Jolla, CA) merges a busy intersection with a traditional baseball diamond—equipped with regulation home plate and bases, a backstop, pitcher’s mound, and base lines. The focal point of Mosher’s piece is the backstop, created by inverting the existing fence that forms the corner of the Chelsea Garden Center and mounting home plate onto the sidewalk. As pedestrians cross the street between home plate and either first or third base, the converted crosswalks extend onto the sidewalk to form base lines marking the boundaries of play.
