Renowned artist, George Wright, was commissioned by the Baines family to paint a portrait of Harold Baines depicting his 22 year career in major league baseball. A series of lithographs on archival paper has been produced from that painting and are being sold to benefit Chicago White Sox Charities.
Coinciding with the unveiling of the statue of Harold to commemorate his years with the Chicago White Sox, the numbered (1-450) limited edition prints are signed by Harold Baines and George Wright. The prints will be available for purchase for $100 at the statue unveiling on Sunday, July 20 and can be purchased at the Sox Split tables located behind home plate on the 100 and 500 levels or by calling 312-674-5391.
Previous works by George Wright were commissioned by the NFL Hall of Fame (Vince Lombardi), the Babe Ruth Museum, the Ted Williams Foundation, the Baltimore Orioles, the Dale Earnhardt family, Duke University and University of Maryland (NCAA basketball champs), and Eddie Murray. George is currently discussing commissioned pieces of Brett Favre and Joe Paterno.
