The Art of Sport + Play art exhibit showcases handmade balls from around the world. Inspirational on so many levels, most of these balls were created by children living in poverty. Despite the dire circumstances that make them grow up all too fast, these recreational creations show that they still manage to hold onto their childhood in order to enjoy the little things in life, such as running and playing around with others.

Put together by Kevin Carroll, the Art of Sport + Play exhibit not only captures children's unfailing spirit, but also their resourcefulness. As Core77 beautifully puts it, "The collection makes tangible our undeniable human need for play and the motivating power of passion."
