Vernon Davis, 49ers Tight End, Wants Kids to Love Art

Davis with his painting of Serena Williams. Not bad.

Not everyone can be a professional tight end in the NFL. But 49ers tight end Vernon Davis wants to let kids know that they can, just like him, follow their dreams to be artists.

On top of a successful career in the NFL, Davis has also been an artist since college; he had a dream about himself painting and decided to switch from a criminal justice major to studio art.

Now he's helping youngsters do the same by partnering with the African-American Arts and Cultural Complex and launching the A.R.T. Ambassador Youth Program.
