All About App at ArtWalk
Looking for a meaningful graduation present or the perfect Mothers Day gift for the enthusiastic App State mom?
This week for Art Crawl, ArtWalk is featuring an iconic photograph by Kip Place of the most historic moment in Appalachian State University football history.
Appalachian State University's victory on Sept. 1, 2007, at "The Big House" in Ann Arbor, Mich., against the University of Michigan made NCAA football history.
That famous, historic last play has been frozen and framed, ready for the App State fan, football enthusiast and sports photography connoisseur.
The photograph perfectly captures the moment Corey Lynch blocks Michigan's field goal just as the clock runs out. The time and a close up of Lynch's play can be seen on the score board in the distance while thousands of yellow-clad App State fans lift their fists in triumph throughout the stadium.
Several sizes and formats of this image are offered at ArtWalk. The images with a frame size of 15x18, 16x19, and 28x33 inches come with either black and yellow double mats or white and yellow double mats. The 28x33 inch piece, which contains the caption "App 'elation' Bringing Down the House! Appalachian State 34-Michigan 32 - September 1, 2007," is also available in a 22x28 inch unframed poster with a black and yellow border. The largest image, at 35x44 inches, is an artist-signed, limited edition print on textured paper with black and white matting.
A triptych is also available in a black and yellow double mat showing other shots of the team making their way into football history and contain the captions "The Kick-Off into NCAA History," "2007 National Championship Game Appalachian State 49 - Delaware 21 - December 14, 2007," and "2005 - 2006 - 2007 National Champions."
