Designed by visionaries after the finest Greek and Roman architectural achievements in human history, Ohio Stadium stands as the greatest collegiate sports cathedral.  Monumental simplicity and classic severity reveal a timeless battleground held so sacred by so many. For 100 years, generations of Ohio State Buckeyes have found themselves in Ohio Stadium cheering on the Scarlet and Gray. Witnesses to eight National Championships, 41 conference titles, hundreds of All-Americans, seven Heisman Trophy winners, Hall of Fame coaches, and some of the greatest teams in college football history.

This original oil painting titled, Ohio's Praise, is painted by artist Gary Muzechuk. The source image is from the souvenir insert found inside the Ohio Stadium Dedication program, October 21, 1922 for the Ohio State vs. Michigan game.  In 2010, James Corcoran of Corcoran Arts & Appraisal Group International, provided a Professional Opinion of Fair Market Value: "Based on our knowledge of the art market for works of this kind, and on the reputation of the artist and the subject of the work, we conclude that a reasonable retail value for the work would be $22,000 - $24,000."  Mr. Corcoran has been an accredited member of the American Society of Appraisers, Appraisers Association of America, and the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners.  He is also an emeritus member of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors. This original canvas had never been offered publicly for sale before, but now is your chance to own this stunning Buckeye masterpiece. Ohio's Praise is a worthy centerpiece of any Ohio State collection!
