National Art Museum of Sport Scores Touchdown With New Art Exhibit

INDIANAPOLIS, IN (July 12, 2011) - The National Art Museum of Sport (NAMOS) will open the Football Invitational exhibit at NAMOS on July 28, 2011. The exhibit will feature nearly fifty paintings, sculptures and photographs from many of the top sport artists from around the world. 

The eyes of the football world will turn to Indianapolis this February when Super Bowl XLVI will be played at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. The inaugural Big Ten Championship game will also be in Indianapolis on December 3, 2011. Until then, the eyes of the world can celebrate the great athletes and moments of the game of football at NAMOS’ Football Invitational exhibit. The exhibit will celebrate the fine art depictions of professional, collegiate, and pick-up football. 

Some of the great artists included in this year’s exhibit are: Benjamin Blackburn, Chris Bucher, David Burnett, Tony Capparelli, Donna Carr, Charles Fazzino, James Fiorentino, Bart Forbes, Troy Hayes, Bob Hogan, Ken Kalman, Larry Klukaszewski, Patrick Mack, Marc Mellon, John Melvin, Bill Menzel, LeRoy Neiman, John Oilar, Debbie Sampson, Joe Sinnott, Dan Tearle, and Elaine Wolfe. 

LeRoy Neiman is likely the best-known name in sport art and one of the most popular artists of all time. He began as an artist during childhood with sketches while playing on the playground at school and went on to win his first national art competition in the 6th grade. Neiman has been telling stories with his artwork ever since. His works have been seen in such diverse places as Red Cross stage sets in the US Army (1940’s) to Playboy (1950’s) and was the official artist of five Olympiads. Neiman said, "I am pleased to participate in the Football Invitational at the National Art Museum of Sport. I have selected "Hand Off", a serigraph from my archives showcasing Super Bowl III." 

Internationally renowned 3-D pop artist, Charles Fazzino, known in the sports world for his works for Super Bowls XXXV – XLV, World Cup Soccer, MLB All-Star Games, Belmont Stakes, Indy 500, NHL All-Star Game, and the United States Olympic Team will include several pieces of his world famous pop-art for the Football Invitational. 

Numerous Indianapolis based artists will also be included in the exhibit including: Chris Bucher, Donna Carr, Patrick Mack, John Oilar, and Elaine Wolfe. Oilar and Wolfe were chosen by the Indianapolis Artist Club for inclusion in its Annual Juried Exhibit at the Indianapolis Museum of Art. 

The Football Invitational artists were selected for their excellence in creating fine art and depicting emotion and motion within the great American game of football. Following the exhibit, most works will be available for purchase through NAMOS. 

“We are thrilled with the many beautiful fine art pieces that will be displayed in NAMOS’ Football Invitational exhibit. We look forward to opening the doors to this gallery and to sharing the excitement of football in Indianapolis this coming season,” added Patrick Perrella, NAMOS Board Chairman. 

The Football Invitational exhibit supports the Museum’s two-pronged mission to encourage sport artists in their efforts to create sport art and to collect, preserve and share the best examples of sport art it can acquire. Founded in 1959, the National Art Museum of Sport has one of the nation’s largest collections of art depicting sport. More than 40 sports are represented in the over 900 paintings, photographs, sculptures and mixed media works in the permanent collection. NAMOS is a 501 (c) 3 organization. 

NAMOS, located at Indiana University -- Purdue University, Indianapolis is located at 850 West Michigan Street, Indianapolis, IN 46202. Admission is free and operating hours are 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. weekdays. For more information, please visit www.namos.iupui.edu.
