A new basketball exhibit is now open at the Everson Museum of Art.

The exhibit, "Hoop Dreams: Basketball and Contemporary Art" will feature 18 different artists from across the country. The museum's website said many of the creators "grew up immersed in basketball culture," and some even played on a college team.

Along with the art, it will include artifacts, such as the 24-second shot clock that was invented in Syracuse. There will also be an interactive exhibit which allows visitors to shoot free throws and three-point shots.

The exhibit is $10 for adults, $8 for seniors and students, and $1 with an EBT card. Admission is free for kids under 12, Everson members, and those in the military.

The exhibit will be open until May 21. The museum is closed every Monday and Tuesday, but open the rest of the week.
