Nearly 100 people stopped in to GV Art + Design in Lakewood
to meet and greet with fellow Browns fans and check out
the shop's latest Browns apparel before the Browns Sunday home opener.

One of the highlights of our visit to GV Art + Design was seeing the “Etch-A-Sketch” art of world-renowned artist George Vlosich III. His one-of-a-kind creations featuring athletes, celebrities, and landmarks are simply breathtaking! His amazing artwork not only decorates the walls of the store, but is also featured in prints and on apparel, greeting cards, magnets, and more. We had the pleasure of meeting and talking to Mr. Vlosich about his unique work.
