A Sturgeon Bay native and graphic artist revealed the new Packer fence artwork across from Lambeau Field this past weekend which featured legendary player Bart Starr. Zane Statz, a graphic designer from DePere, along with a friend, Spencer Young, worked all day on Saturday to complete the annual paint project named “Our Champion Our Starr”. Statz, a 2010 graduate of Sturgeon Bay High School, had the opportunity to paint portraits on a special helmet for the Green Bay Packer’s 50th Anniversary of Super Bowl I two years ago that was auctioned to benefit the Rawhide Boys Ranch that the Starrs help support dating back to 1965. He says the newly painted fence has added meaning to him because of the honor he had in painting the helmet.
Statz donated his time in painting the helmet and the fence painting is sponsored by Cheesehead TV. You can see a picture of the newly painted fence with this story online.
