Football Art, NFL Green
The Green Bay Packers re-modeled Lambeau Field, the football
stadium where they play.
It is a classic
football stadium in which they wanted to keep the tradition of Green Bay
alive by not tearing it down and
building a new one.
They sought out
football art and through their art consultant found and purchased eight pieces
of my work.
The football paintings are
in different locations in the stadium.
This is a photograph of me standing in front of the running back
painting, and, as I recall, it is in a section where the elevators open up to
one of the levels and – there it is.
About the Football Painting
Bay and the art
consultant were very easy to work with.
They allowed me to do whatever I liked – and only with minor
modifications accepted a number of the pieces of art. Their most concern was the accuracy of the
positions the players were in and the actual numbers on the jersey. They had to be in keeping with the time these
players played. In this case number 5,
is the running back, Paul Hornung, with the lead blocker being the great
offensive lineman, Jerry Kramer. They
are playing against the LA Rams. If you
want more information about the painting and it’s placement there is an earlier
link on this blog at http://www.johnrobertsonsportsart.com/2017/08/green-bay-packers-painting-for-lambeau.html
that will tell you more.
