CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — A traveling exhibit on the role of sports in American culture is making its way across West Virginia.

The West Virginia Humanities Council is sponsoring a state tour of the new Smithsonian Institution traveling exhibit "Hometown Teams."

Officials selected six museums and cultural and community organizations to host the exhibit and provide public programs about their local sports culture.

The exhibit is on display at the Weirton Area Museum & Cultural Center through Sept. 27.

It began at the Parkersburg Art Center in February and then moved to the Larry Joe Harless Community Center in Gilbert, the Preston County Sports Museum in Rowlesburg and the Randolph County Community Arts Center in Elkins. The exhibit will be on display at the Morgantown History Museum in October.
