Muhammad Ali Art Exhibition At Generation Pop

GENERATION Pop Art Gallery in Manchester is to commemorate boxing legend Muhammad Ali’s seventieth Birthday with an exhibition featuring the official Muhammad Ali fine art collection.

This is the first time a collection such as this has been put together and each piece is approved and accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from ‘Muhammad Ali Enterprises’.

The Olympic gold medal winner, who also won the BBC's ‘Sports Personality of the Century’ and GQ magazine's ‘Athlete of the Century’, is also a recognised humanitarian, having received the United Nations Messenger of Peace and Amnesty International's Lifetime Achievement Award.

Ali transcends boxing and this official artwork will be highly collectable, appealing to art collectors as well as boxing enthusiasts.

This is the first time a collection such as this has been put together and each piece is approved and accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from ‘Muhammad Ali Enterprises’.

Contributors include British artist Paul Oz, who is also an official artist for the Bruce Lee family, and American artist Joe Petruccio who in 2006 was chosen by MGM and Sly Stallone to create a series of paintings to honour 30 years of Rocky.

Tickets to the opening night on the 17 Jan (Ali's 70th birthday) are available, please call the gallery on 0161 247 7870 for details.

The exhibition will be at the Generation Pop Art Gallery, New York Street, Manchester, M1 4BD, until the 7 February 2012.
