Dean Loucks Licensed
Notre Dame Artist
Dean had been brainstorming different ideas for his gallery in Elkhart. As a Notre Dame local and a crazy Fighting Irish fan he was inspired to reach out to the university. He met with Mike Lowe, the head of merchandizing for ND, at his gallery, then spent a day walking the campus taking over 1,200 pictures.
Now, Dean Loucks is the first and only artist licensed by the University of Notre Dame to create officially licensed fine art paintings. His first art series for Notre Dame is called "The Spirit of the University Series." There are only six original art pieces in celebration of his partnership with the university. A limited reproduction of these art pieces are also available, each one signed and numbered out of 100.
He also has a variety of other Notre Dame gift ideas: custom painted football helmets, t-shirts, KitchenAids, guitars, and pianos.
