Artist creates tribute for Brewers 50th anniversary with the name of every player in history
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- To celebrate the Milwaukee Brewers' 50th anniversary this season, a Brewer's fan hand wrote an image of Miller Park with the names of every Brewer in history.
It took word artist Dan Duffy over 100 hours to create his tribute, which included 919 names dating back to 1969.
Duffy, a Philadelphia word artist, created the piece as a gift to connect generations of baseballs fans by finding their favorite players names in the piece.
According to a news release, the piece is the next step in Duffy's ultimate goal of recreating every major stadium in history with every player ever.
“Although the name will be changing soon, fans will remember this stadium as Miller Park for years to come," Duffy said. "I wanted to keep that nostalgia alive with this artwork, while also showing off their iconic retractable roof. Just writing the names reminded me how many greats played in Milwaukee: Robin Yount, Paul Molitor, and of course Christian Yelich.”
A portion of proceeds will benefit the MACC fund, a Milwaukee non profit raising money for childhood cancer and blood disorders. Standard prints are available here.
