University of Texas Permian Basin will host a unique exhibit called “Museum on Main Street: Hometown Teams - How Sports Shaped America” in partnership with the Smithsonian Institute this fall.

In preparation for this exhibit, two UTPB professors, Dr. Derek Catsam and Dr. Chris Stanley,  are guiding students through the research process in a special Maymester class.

The students will develop research skills and artistic expression to generate a more complete record of the remarkable impact sports and athletes have had on Permian Basin culture.

The project includes research on all sports - at all levels: high school, college and professional.
