The exhibit will feature some of the most memorable moments since the birth of pro football in America by perhaps the best of all American sports photographers, Neil Leifer . Combing through 10,000 rolls of football pictures, including numerous previously unpublished images, this show promises to be an exciting event for collectors of his work as well as for all sports enthusiasts.
In December 1958, he took the picture that remains today, one of his most famous, the shot of Alan Ameche's game-winning "Sudden Death" touchdown, which just happened to be on Leifer's 16th birthday. This game, called "The Greatest Ever Played," signaled football's emergence as America's new national pastime. Formerly half-empty stadiums welcomed sold-out crowds seemingly overnight, while football surpassed pro baseball and college football in national television ratings.
Meet the photographer and join us for a memorable evening as we proudly present Neil Leifer's gallery show of Guts and Glory: The Golden Age of American Football.
