Cleveland.com: Progressive Field depicted in ‘Art of Words’

CLEVELAND, Ohio – Dan Duffy has a way with words. Which is interesting considering he is an artist, not a writer.

What Duffy does is create calligrams. The images are based on typography - that is, names - for his artwork. And among Duffy's collages of ballparks, musicians, entertainers and others is one marking Progressive Field's 25th anniversary.

The work commemorates the stadium that opened as Jacobs Field in 1994. Every player who has donned a Cleveland uniform from 1901 is listed. Red, white, blue, green and gold lettering spills out onto the field and across the bleachers, scoreboard and dugouts. In all, 1,875 players are represented, from Abbott to Zuvernink.
