Li Hu's Packer Paintings
|Exhibit Opens: 02-Aug-2019
|Exhibit Ends: 22-Sep-2019
In celebrating the Green Bay Packers 100 year history, this art exhibit features the work of the late Professor Emeritus of Fine Art at UW-Oshkosh, and Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame Fan Finalist, Li Hu. As a devoted Packers fan, Li Hu completed this
series of oil paintings and illustrations in 2007. What drew the artist to be inspired by “Packers Nation,” was the game-day experience at Lambeau Field.
Li attended his first Packers game in 1997, the season after the Green Bay Packers won Super Bowl XXXI. That Packers' tailgating experience with brats, beer and music was the genesis for this series of Packers fan paintings. Li captured the game-day atmosphere around the stadium using his camera. He then took those fan photos and transformed them into his unique style of oil paintings. He particularly enjoyed painting the Packers fans because as he often said, “There’s a lot about players, but I want to paint the Packers Fans.”
