You are invited to the unveiling of the “Red Grange, 1925” Banner Mural/Sculpture! Moment #7 of The ELEVEN will be unveiled at 4PM on Friday, August 2nd at Phoenix Rising Building.
History behind this moment: Playing in the shadow of pro baseball and college football, the NFL receive a huge boost in 1925 when Chicago signed Harold “Red” Grange, the nation’s most heralded college star, to a pro contract. Ten days later 70,000 spectators packed the Polo Grounds in New York City to watch Grange’s Bears take on the hometown Giants. Grange had become pro football’s first big gate attraction.
The ELEVEN is a public art project of ArtsinStark and The Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton celebrating the greatest moments in professional football history.
