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.

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.
