The Art of Coach Zuppke

Many know of Robert Zuppke (1879-1957) as Illinois’ longest serving football coach, whose teams won or tied for four national championships and seven conference championships between 1913-41.

But he also was an in-demand motivational speaker, syndicated sports writer, co-author of a popular sports comic strip, and accomplished and prolific artist.

The University of Illinois Alumni Association celebrates Robert Zuppke, the artist. Curated from the collections of the UI Alumni Association, University Archives, Division of Intercollegiate Athletics and others, The Art of Coach Bob Zuppke exhibition includes more than 20 of his oil paintings, watercolors and sketches. It also features photos and artifacts from the Zuppke era at Illinois.
