Local Artist Writes His Way Into Big 5 History

October 20, 2016

I’ve created a one of a kind word art drawing to commemorate the 60th Anniversary of Big 5 basketball. The original piece of art was auctioned off at the Coaches vs. Cancer annual Gala this past April and raised $2700! 100% of proceeds went to the American Cancer Society.

I meticulously hand wrote the dates, teams and scores from every Men’s Big 5 game ever played to create the historic Palestra, the center of Big 5 basketball over the last 60 years. Proceeds from each sale will benefit the American Cancer Society.
