The painting of a Green Bay Packers football play, in this case a sweep against the Rams, was created by sports artist John Robertson for the remodel of the suites area of Lambeau Field, the football stadium for the Green Bay Packers.
It was a very special night with my wife a few months ago at the Green Bay Packers Art Collection opening at Lambeau Field. Great celebration and opportunity to tour the stadium and see the eight pieces installed. The enthusiasm and warmth of all the Packer fans involved, from everyone working the event to president of the organization, Mark Murphy, was extraordinary!
For those of you who have not visited Lambeau Field in
I highly recommend a visit. First of
all, Green Bay, Wisconsin Green Bay
is an enthusiastic town for football. Everywhere
there are references to the Packers: restaurants, bars, clubs, businesses all
interested in the great game of Packers football. The stadium itself is just beautiful with a
retro look that gives it the feel of old time football. It has been around for 61 years and yet they
maintain it with great care making it a truly fabulous place to watch a
game. In 1999 Sports Illustrated named
it as one of the top 10 places to watch a sporting event. And I can’t imagine it not being still
considered one of the best places to see a football game. I did have an opportunity to see a game a
number of years ago which is one of my great memories of seeing a sporting
event. They run tours of the stadium
which you will see the history in the art displayed throughout the venue.
Original sports paintings are available from my studio or on commission.
