Levi's Stadium (when completed) will welcome 68,500 San Francisco 49ers fans next season, but football won't be the only attraction. The stadium will also feature a 200-piece art collection curated by Tracie Speca-Ventura of Sports and the Arts.
The works in the collection were commissioned from a group of 23 artists and includes paintings, sculptures, drawings, and photographs. "A majority of the collection features artists that are local and this unique opportunity allows them to embrace what California means to them," said Speca-Ventura in a statement for the project. She added that "while celebrating football past and present, the walls also share the stage for series of art celebrating the Bay Area surf scene, agriculture, wineries, poets and writers and the psychedelic music of the 60’s and 70’s.”
