This historic commemorative print features a capacity Michigan Stadium crowd with a distinctive Block M background. Ringing the stadium are dramatic depictions of Harmon, Carter, Chappuis, Oosterbaan, Kramer and Howard (see close-ups below), six of the greatest Wolverines ever to play in Michigan Stadium. These Michigan legends represent each era and every player who has ever donned the maize and blue. The print also features, as it has never been pictured before, an empty stadium one day prior to the Dedication Day in 1927 and sunrise over a still Michigan Stadium, on a beautiful Saturday morning, just hours before Bump Elliott or Bo Schembechler leads the Wolverines onto the field. This outstanding painting captures all of the drama and glory inherent to Michigan Stadium. These historically accurate and richly detailed images mark the first time that some of these players have been portrayed in full color action poses.
This print is dedicated to the patients at the C.S. Mott Children's Hospital. For every print you buy, the artist will donate an additional print to C.S. Mott Children's Hospital.
