The picket fence along Lombardi Avenue across from Lambeau Field will have a new message and a fresh coat of paint this Saturday, thanks to a native of Sturgeon Bay. Zane Statz of De Pere, who graduated from Sturgeon Bay High School in 2010, will complete the project with the help of a friend, Spencer Young. The two have collaborated in the last few years with design and renderings of Packer greats past and present. Statz shares what goes into finishing the 70-foot long fence that is six feet high.
After over 12 hours of painting on Saturday, the finished artwork on the fence will be unveiled in time for Sunday’s Packer game against the Minnesota Vikings. Statz says this was his fifth year of painting the fence and would only say the new artwork will incorporate the century-old history of the Packers. You can see pictures of the past Packer fence artwork above.
