Louisville, KY — Famed sports artist LeRoy Neiman created the 37th Annual Official Ryder Cup Artwork commemorating the event to be held September 16-21, 2008 at Valhalla Golf Club in Louisville, KY.

Neiman also donated two original portrait paintings of Ryder Cup captains Paul Azinger and Nick Faldo which will be auctioned for charity.

All proceeds will benefit First Tee of Kentucky and the Muhammad Ali Center.

About the Artist
LeRoy Neiman is considered today one of the most important American artists of the 20th century. His use of vivid tones evokes a phenomenon of change and dynamism. Up close, his paintings appear abstract. From a distance, they become articulated into a more realistic imagery. He accomplishes this with fast moving strokes, which give the impression of action. His use of vivid color electrifies his paintings and serigraphs.
