The South is serious about their sports. Whether football, basketball, or soccer we don’t play and we ride for our teams hard. There is even a shrine of sorts downtown called The College Football Hall of Fame. The CFHF houses a 45-yard indoor football field, and more than 50 engaging and interactive exhibits. The latest exhibit to be added to this shrine downtown is “The Art of College Football”.
This is a limited-time exhibit that will be on display starting May 18, 2023. This exhibit will display rarely-seen artwork from 12 renowned artists. Visitors will get to view a collection of four Arnold Friberg paintings commissioned in 1968 to celebrate The Centennial of College Football. These pieces were donated to the Hall of Fame in honor of the James and Andrea Clarke Family.
In addition to Friberg’s pieces other works of art from the following artist will also be on display: LeRoy Neiman Mike Simpson Joyce Ballantyne, Bill Williams, Terrence Fogarty, Herb Mott, Noel Sickles, Charles McVicker, Steve Skipper, Ken Modak, and Jeff Joseph. Guests will also be able to view other works of art that are housed at the CFHF. Be sure to check out the exhibit this summer at The Chick-fil-A College Football Hall of Fame 250 Marietta St., N.W. Atlanta, GA 30313.
