About Canton
Canton is the birthplace of professional football and home to the Pro Football Hall of Fame (pictured right).  It is located about an hour south of Cleveland. ArtsinStark, the private non profit arts council for the county is partnering with The Pro Football Hall of Fame to create The Eleven – a series of public artworks celebrating the 11 greatest moments in professional football history. The majority of the eleven works will be located in downtown Canton within walking distance of one another --- which is about a two miles from the Pro Football Hall of Fame. All artwork styles will be considered and our goal is for the series to represent every kind of art being made in America.

The Eleven is a multi-year project. The first work for which we are commissioning artwork is moment #4: the Formation of the NFL or the "Birth of the NFL." Our objective is to install it during 2013 --- the 50th anniversary year of the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
