Chiefs Super Bowl Rally Celebration 2020

$100.00 $155.00

Kansas City, MO

I'll admit that I am not the world's hugest football fan, but it's hard to not get caught up in the excitement of the hometown winning team!  I loved how it created unity and brought our communities together.  The excitement in the air was almost tangible as we drew closer and closer to the championship game.

I did not brave the crowds and venture downtown for the Super Bowl Rally Celebration and parade, but I did stream the entire thing online, which I think was actually better.  I got to see every funny, quirky, and touching moment that happened, and later on, when the memes and stories circulated around the web, I could say "I was there (virtually)!"

Fun Facts:

  • More than 1 million people enjoyed the parade and celebration rally in person
  • A little after 9 AM, a car broke through the barriers and raced down the parade route.  It only stopped after it was rammed by a police car
  • Temps hovered in the 20's, and there was even a little bit of snow
  • Most schools around the city were cancelled for a "Red Snow Day"
  • Patrick Mahomes threw footballs to the fans from atop his double decker bus.  One fan collided with a parking meter and knocked himself out while trying to catch one
  • Many of the players were sporting Oakley goggles, and Travis Kelce wore a $18,600 Louis Vuitton sherling coat and the custom championship belt sent to the team by the WWE 

Process And Size Guidelines

I handcraft each piece in my home studio, located just outside of Kansas City, MO.

Most of the photos I use were taken by me on my travels near and far.    I review each photo, looking for striking colors and strong structural elements.    If you think of the entire design as a pie, I am looking for a perfect “slice” of pie within the picture.  Once I find it, the slice is mirrored and repeated in a circular fashion to create the whole pie, i.e. the kaleidoscopic design.

 

The design then is printed multiple times onto photo paper and I hand cut different elements from each copy of the design with scissors (yes, scissors!). After the cutting is done, I reassemble the pieces into tiered layers separated by foam core, creating the unique three-dimensional kaleidoscopic effect.  Finally, I mount the piece onto mat board and frame it in a shadow box, adding a small copy of the original photo to the piece.

 

 

Each design is available in multiple sizes.  The larger the piece, the more layers the design will have, which gives you even greater depth and dimension.  The larger size also allows for more intricate cutting, providing more texture and more "wow"!
