Fazzino Unveils Super Bowl XLV Artwork at 100-Day Countdown Luncheon










Event on the Field of Cowboys Stadium Celebrates the Final Drive to Region’s First Super Bowl


NORTH TEXAS – The 100-day countdown to the most anticipated sporting event in North Texas begins with a joint luncheon of the North Texas Super Bowl XLV Host Committee and the North Texas Commission on Thursday, Oct. 28 at Cowboys Stadium. The 100-day XLV Countdown Luncheon will commemorate the journey from the successful Super Bowl XLV bid in 2007 to kick-off on Sunday, Feb. 6, 2011.


“Super Bowl XLV is a premier event that will put North Texas in the spotlight on the global stage,” said Bill Lively, President and CEO of the North Texas Super Bowl XLV Host Committee. “The impact our region will feel from this event will be long-lasting in terms of economic and community development.”


The luncheon will be held on the field at Cowboys Stadium and will unveil the commemorative artwork of Super Bowl XLV by Charles Fazzino, one of the most popular and highly-collected pop artists of all time. Officially licensed by the NFL to create limited edition art, Fazzino captures the spirit of each Super Bowl host city through a mastering of 3D pop art. Those attending the luncheon will have the first opportunity to purchase Fazzino’s unique Super Bowl XLV artwork. NFL fans can also view Fazzino’s work at the NFL Experience during Super Bowl XLV week.


“We are excited to come together with the North Texas Super Bowl XLV Host Committee to kick off the countdown to the best example of the power of regional collaboration,” said Mabrie Jackson, President and CEO of the North Texas Commission. “This is an event that joins municipalities, businesses and education institutions together for the single goal of putting on a spectacular event for the entire world to see.”

    Mr. Fazzino, your work is masterful. I have been trying to reach out to you through many different resources. I saw the mini-helmets that you did for the Dallas Cowboys for the golf event a couple of months ago. They were amazing. Well, I was hoping that you would donate a Super Bowl XLV piece or a Dallas Cowboys piece to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital since The FOX Sports team named the hospital as it’s charity of choice for the 2010-2011 NFL season. At the Legends for Charity dinner to be held at the Hilton Anatole on February 3, from 5:30-8:30 pm, the FOX Sports team (including Troy Aikaman and Jimmy Johnson) will receive the Pat Summerall Award. It would be such an honor to have one of your pieces on display and available for sale during the auction. Truly it would be a highlight of the evening and a blessing to the kids served by St. Jude that are suffering with cancer and other catatrophic illinesses. I hope to meet you in person one day soon. Thanks for your consideration! Regina
