Football playing artist exhibits in Sacramento

The Crocker Art Museum in Sacramento has been a community resource for a long time.  Today, it opened its new wing to fanfare.  Among the special events of the day were a group of art work done by children from three schools in the area.  Included among the artists were my oldest grandson.  The kids in this class did variations of Wayne Thiebaud.

My grandson was at the opening.  As you can see he took a frequent Thiebaud theme and then used ice cream as the inspiration.  It is not often you can watch a great offensive lineman be transformed into an artist with work in a major gallery in about 24 hours.
