The Art of SJ39

Early in 2014, NFL running back Steven Jackson began a new journey. At the suggestion of his friend, artist Michael Kalish, Jackson collected the best photographs he had taken during his travels around the world, and attempted to transform a handful of them into new works of art.

On the one hand, it rekindled a passion for art that had seized Jackson’s imagination as a young boy growing up in urban Las Vegas. At the same time, it was one of the most difficult challenges Jackson had ever undertaken, an effort to explore a completely new realm as best he could. 


The Film

Filmed on July 17th, 2014 — the day of Steven Jackson’s debut art show at Los Angeles’ Hamilton-Selway Fine Art gallery — “Out of the Box” chronicles the anxieties and hopes of an aspiring artist taking his first steps into a new world.
