GREEN BAY PACKERS PAINTING FOR LAMBEAU FIELD ART COLLECTION
About the Green Bay Packers Art Colletion
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.
The new remodel of the suites and club level using art was installed in July 2017. The painting is approximately 5 feet by 8 feet, acrylic on stretched canvas. The rest of Jopn Robertson’s sports artwork (eight pieces) is displayed on the suite and club levels of Lambeau Field, which means it is not available to other fans on a regular basis.
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 Green Bay, Wisconsin, I highly recommend a visit. First of all, 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
