"A tribute to Coach"

Coach Ara and Delgado during the unveiling of the art.

In 1994, Delgado was contacted my Mr. Ernie Hughes, a prominent Notre Dame college football star and 49er who played under the Ara's era of  Notre Dame's football great history.
He and other past Notre Dame players which included Rudy ( in which the movie "Rudy" was based on) got together and wanted to commission the artist  to create a original tribute to coach. Plans were to produce a limited edition from it and sell the planned Ara autograph lithographs  to raise monies for his foundation.  Delgado was more than glad to comply in working with some wonderful individuals who inspired the artist to create this work that he is very proud to have been involve with.
"I  just felt the love and traditions that Ara represented. My brush was guided by the emotions in portraying not just a great coach and but a loving family man. By his example and teachings his players and fans will forever keep him in their hearts". Delgado

Following a 40-6 loss to Nebtaska in the 1973 Orange Bowl, Coach Parseghian opened his first winter meeting with his distinct quality of delivering a strong message. His "adversity" quote made an impact...A new season culminated with a Notre Dame football team that went undefeated and brought home the National Championship! Decades later, these same inspirational words impassioned world renowned sports artist, Armando Delgado to create a rendering which honors this man of such eternal wisdom. Deeply touched by the story of Ara;s grandchildren and with a srtoke of artistic genius, Delgado gave renewed spirit to these powerful words.

This magnificent watercolor artwork simply titled" Ara," is the only rendering of legendary Notre Dame football coach Ara Parseghian. With artistic brilliance that captured the essence of his life at Notre Dame, the piece honors Ara as coach, mentor and father. It also commemorates the efforts of the Ara Parseghian Medical Research Foundation.

Recognized as one of our nation's premier sports artists, Armando Delgado has been commissioned by an extensive and impressive clientele of prominent legends, including Joe Montana, John Elway, George Foreman, Michael Jordan, Joe DiMaggio and Kristi Yamaguchi. His works have been shown at the White House and are a permanent patr of the prominent collections belonging to Ronald Reagan, John Madden, Gene Hackman and Edward DeBartolo, Jr. The #1 Artist's Proof of" Ara" sold for $7 ,500 at auction during San Francisco's Notre Dame Celebrity Golf Classic. Clearly, this rendering is recognized and appreciated as a rare and valuable art acquisition.

As a friend and member of the Notre Dame family, you are invited to purchase this treasure -an extraordinary piece of art and wisdom to be shared for generations as the showpiece of your home or office. The art market for Delgado creations is very strong, as indicated by international interest, past sales and as featured on the NFL' s Hard Core Football on Fox television.
