attachment-1 “ONCE YOU SEE IT, YOU’LL WANT IT” …JOE B. HALL -APPROVED ART IS PERFECT FOR FATHER’S DAY Looking for that Perfect Gift for your “True-Blue” Dad -- and with a “Father’s Day” discount* to boot?? Well, you’re in luck!… Legendary Kentucky Coach Joe B. Hall has commissioned “Eight is Great,” the definitive artwork of Kentucky’s 2012 NCAA Championship. And with Coach Calipari’s autographing of it late last month, the premium art prints have now been OFFICIALLY RELEASED -- and are available at 3 select Lexington stores! This beautiful action artwork celebrates UK’s eighth title, and is for all TRUE-BLUE Kentuckians to enjoy! “The imagery in this art is among the best I’ve ever seen,” praised Coach Hall, “and I’ve been collecting sports art for many years, from many different and famous artists. Especially since the artist is a Kentuckian, I’m very proud to own this.” “Once you see it, you’ll want it!” Hall concluded. You can proudly own one too, but act quick -- there are not that many available. “Eight is Great” is an exclusive, Premium Fine Art series of ONLY 20 TOTAL PRINTS: 12 Limited Edition Prints (for the year 2012), plus 8 Artist’s Proofs (for the 8 national titles), and Coach Hall asked Lexington native and current Orlando Magic artist David Bryan Blondell to create it. With over 200 studio hours in doing so, no corners were cut to bring you this art -- and you’re going to need some wall space, too: To properly reflect the enormity of UK winning the ’12 title to the university and its fans, this framed art is big! Each numbered print is an oversized, high-quality Gicleé reproduction that is beautifully & professionally framed (final size: 45” x 60”), and -- best of all -- each Certified print has been individually autographed by Coach John Calipari! (See photos of official signing ceremony in Rupp Arena on May 21.) Since Coach Cal does not sign such art often and will also own the original large oil painting, this Exclusive, 1-time release is sure to be a Collectible that will only increase in value. While not cheap ($2500 framed), it is actually a very reasonable price when compared to other limited art collectibles and rare UK memorabilia. -- Once they’re gone, THEY’RE GONE! Although this art project was announced in early April while UK was still the reigning champs, it is only now available to be seen in person at 3 select Lexington stores: Go to Kennedy Bookstore (next to campus), Wildcat Wearhouse (Fayette Mall location) or “Your Frame of Mind” Gallery (Rupp Arena location) in Lexington to view the actual framed piece; or go online at or to view it & to order yours today! *SPECIAL “FATHER’S DAY” PROMOTION: Order in-Store or on-line by Father’s Day (this Sunday, June 16th), and receive $100 OFF the total price… Get your (or your Dad’s) favorite Print Number before someone else does!!
