We all know Cowboys Stadium is major. The central scoreboard (seen above) is CRAZE. Everything is, indeed, bigger and better in Texas. 

That includes an ambitious stadium art program. When conceiving of the new Cowboys Stadium, Jerry and Gene Jones wanted to push far beyond the typical stadium trappings. They commisioned artists from Texas and around the world to create unusual and inspiring images that connect art and sports. Gene Jones is quoted as saying, "We're breathing new life into a tradition that extends back to the Greeks and Romans, who integrated the art of their time into the stadiums where the best athletes gathered to compete." 

We can guarentee that even if the Cowboys don't succeed on the field this season, they'll continue to lead the NFL in artistic merit. 

Take a walk through Cowboys Stadium and check out highlights from the biggest and best art collection in sports.
