PRAY BALL: Hallowed Be Their Names, Will Holub's paintings of 1970s Major League Baseball players, are based on vintage baseball trading cards. By recontextualizing these past symbols of male athletic prowess as gilded objects of devotion similar to religious icons, the paintings underscore how the fervor and zealotry once reserved for religious rituals have inexorably migrated to the veneration of sports figures.
