Thanks to all of you who gave me names of athlete artists....I'll save the
best till last! Of course, everyone remembers Rosie Greer, but I figure my
kids would say "Who?". Also had the names Omar Visquel, shortstop for the
Cleveland Indians, Rick Zombo of the Detroit Red Winds (who does wonderful
pencil drawings), also a former OSU baseball player whose last name is Bellows
(at least tried out for Cinci Reds). But, best of all for me (since my
student specifically wanted a NBA player), Patrick Ewing is a fine arts
graduate of Georgetown University. He had a landscape on exhibit at the
National Museum of American Art and one of his paintings is on a Private Issue
credit card. The exhibit was called "Time out! Sports in Art" and Ewing is
co-authoring a book called "In the Paint With Patrick", available early next
year. Thank heavens for all of your leads and the Web! Four more
days....Melissa Smith
