ART OF THE NFL Green Bay Packers

This is another one of my paintings of a Green Bay Packers player in a uniform of the Acme Packers.  The Acme Packers were the name of Green Bay used before they were the Packers.  The painting was in the Celebration of Super Bowl 50, a group Super Bowl Art Show (with five large-scale football paintings)

Early on in their history (in 1919) , the founders of the Green Bay Packers got money for their uniforms from the Indian Packing Company, a business specializing in canned meat. Even after the company was bought by another meat processor the Acme Packing Company they kept the Packers name and called the team the Acme Packers.  Though the original sponsor of the team was the Indian Packing Company, it was under Acme that the team joined the American Professional Football Association (soon to be the NFL) in 1921

The Acme Packers, Green Bay Packers, painting is 4 feet b y 7 1/2 feet, acrylic on unstretched canvas.  (No stretcher bars or frames.

The Super Bowl 50 was held in the San Francisco 49er’s Levi Stadium this year which is right down the road from the gallery.  The name of the gallery is JCO’S Place – Fine Art  Los Gatos.  You can see a great deal of my sports paintings by visiting my sports painting blog at: http://www.JohnRobertsonSportsPaintings.com

 Special Guests

Dwight Clark (#87, Former 49er) was the receiver in the famous “Catch” which  refers to the winning touchdown reception by Dwight Clark off a Joe Montana pass in the January 10, 1982, NFC Championship Game between the Dallas Cowboys and San Francisco 49ers. The Catch is widely regarded as one of the most memorable events in NFL history. The game represented the end of the Cowboys’ domination in the NFC since the conference’s inception in 1970, and the beginning of the 49ers’ rise as an NFL dynasty in the 1980s.
