BATON ROUGE - 2une In's Rebecca Buchanan visited Walk-Ons this morning for Breakfast with 2une In to preview the Leroy Neiman: Action! art exhibit.
The "Leroy Neiman: Action!" exhibit opened on August 2nd at the LSU Museum of Art. It features over eighty of the best drawings, paintings and prints from the legendary sports illustrator. Curator Katie Pfohl says Neiman is the greatest sports artist of the twentieth century.
"He's famous for being up close with the athletes and capturing their every motion all across sports," she explains.
The exhibit also includes some LSU connections.
"In addition to drawing Pete Maravich in 1970, we also have some classic LSU memorabilia on display," Pfohl says. "We have lockers from Tiger Stadium signed by the LSU greats, nearly 100 different baseballs signed by all the national championship teams and a painting of the Tiger eye by a local artist."
Leroy Neiman: Action! is on display now until January 17th, 2015 at the LSU Museum of Art in the Shaw Center in downtown Baton Rouge.
Rebecca also got ready for LSU Kick-off by previewing some delicious dishes at Walk-Ons, including wraps, pastas, wings and burgers. Check out the videos for more information.
