  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 will be on display at the Preston County Sports Museum in the Szilagyi Center in Rowlesburg through Saturday.

It began at the Parkersburg Art Center in February and then moved to the Larry Joe Harless Community Center in Gilbert.

The other remaining sites are:  the Randolph County Community Arts Center, the Weirton Area Museum & Cultural Center and the Morgantown History Museum.
