|Stephen Holland: The Official Artist Of
The 2010 All Star Game Fan Fest
We often say Stephen Holland and his art can always be found smack dab in the middle of wherever the biggest sports action is taking place. This time we mean it quite literally.
During Major League baseball's All Star Game celebration this summer, Stephen Holland was honored as the Fan Fests official artist. In this massive convention that is visited by tens of thousands of baseball's most devoted fans, who make this annual pilgrimage, Stephen took center stage in the midst of baseballs biggest gathering. From that stage the sea of fans experienced a rare treat.
Typically the creative labors of Stephen are produced in his quiet studio tucked away in Santa Barbara, California, where very few have had the experience of watching the most noted artist of sports and celebrity work. This time the visitors of Fan Fest got to see Stephen paint live and in person.
Over the days leading up to the game, the fans got to witness brush stroke by brush stroke, the progress of Holland's latest painting. And in this case apropos to the event being in Anaheim, it was The Angels own legendary Hall of Famer Rod Carew.
