The Baker Museum at Artis-Naples is currently featuring complimentary exhibitions of baseball memorabilia and fine art from the private collections of the museum’s namesakes, Jay and Patty Baker. “Baseball Heroes: Works from the Jay H. Baker Collection” includes items from a truly remarkable collection of unique items celebrating five of the game’s most notable athletes who spent all or most of their careers with the New York Yankees including Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Joe DiMaggio, Mickey Mantle, and Derek Jeter.

Meanwhile, the “Love in All Forms” exhibition features works of fine art from Patty and Jay Baker’s private collection including pieces representing some of the most significant art historical movements of the past 150 years. Jay and Patty Baker join us to explore the installations, which run through May 15.
