Longhorn fans are unlike any fans I’ve seen in college football; they’re passionate and electric.
Austin, TX (PRWEB) September 01, 2015
Artist Mike Sullivan, who is currently creating a series of 25 murals at stadiums and venues across the country (UCLA, Notre Dame, USC, ASU, BNP Open), finished the approved pencil layout drawing for “The Faces of Longhorn Nation,” a tribute mural at DKR-Texas Memorial Stadium, to honor and celebrate the great spirit of all Texas Longhorn fans around the world.
Mike launches his Kickstarter campaign on September 1, 2015, inviting Texas Longhorn fans and supporters to help fund, build, and create the Mural. The 30-day campaign plans to raise $75,000 to help pay for materials, tools, and supplies to create the art preparation, manufacturing and treatment of the mural tiles, manufacturing of the mural frame, and installation of the mural plaque and lighting at Darrel K. Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium.
“Longhorn fans are unlike any fans I’ve seen in college football; they’re passionate and electric,” states Artist Mike Sullivan, “I was fortunate enough to be at the Rose Bowl the day Texas won the National Championship and saw the Longhorn Nation loyalty and energy first hand. I look forward to creating the first ever Fan Tribute Mural at this Legendary Stadium and University.”
Campaign backers can pledge a range of donations from $10—$10,000. Several exclusive rewards are available for backing the campaign, including:
- Personal voicemail message recorded by any Longhorn Head Coach of your choice
- A round of golf with Texas Men’s Golf Coach John Fields
- Private baseball lessons with Texas Baseball coach Augie Garrido
- Carrying the UT flag on the field during a home football game at DKR-Texas Memorial Stadium
- Signed artwork and memorabilia from Vince Young, Coach Mack Brown, Mike Sullivan, and other renowned members of the Longhorn community.
