Before I dive into details about Spirit of Sports, allow me to explain briefly why I’m fond of and excited about this young company.
In my own discriminate view, Spirit of Sports is a gem. A real gem, a treasured commodity in the sense that I have the opportunity to admire two of my favorite things at the same time: art and sports. You see, I’m a lover of sports, specifically track & field. As a matter of fact, I was an avid track star in high school; 100 meters, 200 meters and relay races. Competitive and team sports was my sanctuary.
There are no words to describe the feeling of your feet pounding the pavement every few seconds or pushing yourself to go further even though you’re drop-dead tired or approaching the finish line despite the annoying little voice telling you enough or not caring what the world thinks because you’re in your element. The “Runner” is a personal favorite of mine. This piece not only tells my story but more importantly motivates me on my daily journeys.
And that, my dear friends, is the essence of Spirit of Sports.
As eloquently stated by the founder of Spirit of Sports, John Pagnucco, “…people want to live surrounded by beautiful works of art or objects relating to sports activities that spark wonderful memories in their own lives when participating in or watching the sports they loved brought them a feeling of powerful joy and excitement.“
“…Sports activities speak to the heart of what people value – hard work, passion, commitment to a goal…and the ecstatic feeling of pride and accomplishment when it all comes together…“
Spirit of Sports‘ eCommerce site offers fine arts, sculptures, gifts and more in 30 different sports categories. Their luxury line of timeless art is exclusive to their target market who are not interested in sports memorabilia or hero art but interested in sports art that means something much more.
