WARWICK, RI — It was one of the most exciting finishes to any Division Championship in the NFL history; and the final game-winning field goal, launched by Adam Vinatieri – New England Patriot place-kicker – has been captured in print forever. That moment, now in art, will be unveiled at a special ceremony at the Warwick Mall on Tuesday, April 9, at 6:45 p.m.
The picture captures the moment. During blizzard-like conditions, Vinatieri drove the famous field goal into the Oakland Raiders’ end zone, earning the Patriots an AFC divisional Championship. It was also the last game ever played at Foxboro Stadium.
The print is made available through Alan Rudolph of SMA, Inc. Herbie Holland Art and Frame Studio of Cranston is the exclusive distributor of the limited edition-licensed prints, which each bear a unique NFL-licensed number. Rudolph and Vinatieri are donating a portion of the proceeds they raise through the sale of this print, to St. Patrick’s meal kitchen, in Providence. It is a charity with which they are both actively involved, serving a large number of low-income and homeless individuals.
The public is invited to witness the presentation of the 16″ x 20″ gicl’e that Adam Vinatieri will unveil in the Food Court. They are also invited to meet the Superbowl star and hear his recollection of the famous game. 1000 signed and numbered limited-edition prints will be available at a special introductory rate of $600 each (plus RI tax,) through Holland’s studios at 1655 Elmwood Avenue, Cranston.
A gicl’e is a museum quality print, which uses the latest technology giving almost a 3-dimensional appearance, and results in a print tested for longevity of about 200 years, without fading or discoloration.
