St Louis artist and IDA Ambassador, Russell Irwin creates and donates a one-of-a-kind Peyton Manning Paper Mosaic for 2012 Invisible Disabilities Association Honors Banquet. The 20 x 30 Paper Mosaic is autographed by both Russell Irwin and by Peyton Manning, Quarterback for the Denver Broncos.
I begin my creation by applying layers of torn paper in mosaic patterns of texture and color. This becomes the surface on which I use power sanders to grind, carve and articulate integrated dimensions of image and story.
I call these works of art Paper Mosaics. These are my creations; this is my art, the work that I love.
~ Russell Irwin
IDA is so thrilled by this amazing donation which is the center piece of our live auction at our 5th Annual Honors Banquet on October 14th.
We are overwhelmed by the generosity of both Russell and Peyton. To have an original work of art created by such a renowned sports artist as Russell Irwin who has also been commissioned by the NFL, the Masters, the Dallas Cowboys and of course extensive works for the St Louis Cardinals is quite amazing unto itself. To also have a future Hall of Fame Quarterback, Peyton Manning signing his name to it is over the top!
Every true Peyton Manning fan should lining up to register for the chance to bid on a part of history on October 14th in Lone Tree, Colo. As fantastic as it is, the Paper Mosaic is only part of a wonderful evening of honoring twelve individuals and organizations nationwide who are making a difference in the lives of people touched by illness, pain and disability. The evening will be capped off with a keynote by world record holder and adventure athlete Antarctic Mike (Pierce) and his wife Angela, a life long disability survivor.
