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.

Green Bay Packers Commission

 I have had the privilege to paint art for another NFL football stadium, Lambeau Field, the stadium for the Green Bay Packers, one of the oldest franchises in the NFL. Eight of my paintings in their permanent art collection adorn different sections of the suites and club levels of Lambeau Field inGreen Bay Wisconsin.  I have also have works or art in the permanent collection of the NFL’s Levi Stadium, home of the San Francisco Forty Niners and the US Bank stadium, home of the Minnesota Vikings, among other arena’s and ballparks.  (see bio.)

 About the Green Bay Packers Art

 I feel it is a great honor to be able to create work that celebrates the culture and history of Lambeau Field, one of the great stadiums to watch a football game in.  Using canvas, acrylic and other materials such as maps and old newsprint with the images I painted specific players along with a series of old football posters.   I was given great freedom to paint what I wanted.  As my favorite era of the Green Bay Packers was the sixties I created half of the paintings from that period. 

Why I am a fan of Green Bay Packers 

The reason I am such a fan of the Packers is that during the sixties I had a good friend whose family was from Green Bay, Wisconsin.  We spent a couple of weeks in Green Bay, and went to their practice field every day.  What was so great about those days was that one could sit on the practice field, on the bench, with the players and actually talk with them.  Can you imagine sitting next to your football idols?  My favorite of all times was Ray Nitschke the absolutely best linebacker off all time. Yup. Sat next to him and talked.  Fuzzy Thurston, the great lineman, Jim Taylor, Paul W. Horning, (the golden boy) Jerry Kramer, etc. 


Original paintings are featured in several areas on Lambeau Field's Associated Bank Club Level. It includes rarely seen historical photographs provided by the Press-Gazette and art obtained from nineteen artists through the sports consulting firm, Sports & The Arts.
