ART BY COMMISSION
Every sport, in every league, has teams and players who command attention. The
Great One, Magic, The Steel Curtain, Monsters of The Midway, Air Jordan and of course The Greatest are iconic names of some who have dominated their sport. They captured our imaginations and became legends.
Art, from the earliest drawing on a caveman’s wall, art has always symbolized our passions and reflected our desires of “what we want.” It’s personal in every way. Owning a work of art of the sport, player or team that you admire makes a statement of who you are. From experience, I know that when you own art that moves you are inspired every time you see it.
For me, it was the fierce and intense image of Dick Butkus, the great Chicago Bears Linebacker, who made me a lifelong fan of the NFL. Tiger’s steely confidence in golf, or the air defying leaps of NBA Michael Jordan. Gretzky’s hockey goals, Jabbar’s NBA sky-hook, or Jackie Robinson’s baseball courage – it’s all Art.
