During the month of August 2011 Bob Mueller created an Art Show with late Steve Sabol during the Annual NFL HOF Ceremonies in Canton, Ohio. The two "NFL Films Artists" displayed over 40 works of Art as part of the NFL Community.
Steve Sabol had played an integral and continuing role in Mueller's art and sadly this was Sabol's last art show. Steve's battle with cancer ended the following on September 18, 2012.

STEVE SABOL: ARTIST
You know that Steve is easily the most honored sports film maker
His art collection, THE GUTS AND THE GLORY OF FOOTBALL brings his love of history, nostalgia and the grit of NFL Football together in his hand made collages and art work. His eye for detail and cinematic sense of drama and color make his work visually stunning and intellectually interesting.
All the pieces in the show are offered for sale making this a unique opportunity for fans and art patrons alike to actually own a piece of history as created by the legendary eye of the president of NFL FILMS.
BOB MUELLER: ARTIST
A life long Chicago Bears fan, Bob, the TOUGH GUY ARTIST awakened his long dormant artist within - then set out to rediscover
Steve Sabol captured the story in the 2008 EMMY AWARD winning
"FINDING YOUR BUTKUS"
Since the feature, his art has quickly become collectable for both players and fans. He blends the raw vibrance of football with the deep emotion that it takes to play the game.
With the liberal use of color and mediums, Mueller's work explodes off the canvas with movement and vibrance.
There's nothing subtle about football or this artist.
His ultimate passion is for the players of the 1960's and 70's so creating THE NFL FILMS TOP 10/100 with Steve is a dream come true.
Mueller's NFL FILMS Top 10/100 Collection, as well as portraits of the 2011 Hall of Fame Inductees will be on sale at the Cyrus Gallery in Canton.
