SERIOUSLY, THE VIKINGS AND ART?
The Minnesota Vikings hired Sports and the Arts (SATA) to curate the art for U.S. Bank Stadium. This process began during the winter of 2015 when SATA held an open call for artists. Though I thought it was a long shot, I put together a portfolio and submitted my screen prints. Nearly 1100 artists applied to be considered for the collection. Of those submissions, 33 artists were selected to create works exclusive to the stadium. And of those 33 artists, only one printmaker was selected (me!).
Above is a video that shows some of the artwork on display during the initial presentation by SATA to the Vikings Organization.
