PHOENIX, Ariz. -- Local Scottsdale artist Brent Benger was a busy guy preparing for the Super Bowl, creating three paintings that were auctioned off at some of the most exclusive Super Bowl parties in town.

Benger’s Steven Tyler painting was created for Rolling Stone Magazine’s A-list Super Bowl bash over the weekend. Benger was contacted by the party organizers to create the painting on a short deadline, and went straight to work on the masterpieces.

Proceeds from the sale were donated to Angels on Patrol, a local charity through which Tempe and Phoenix police officers provide resources for families and children in need.

Benger also produced two more paintings for auction at Super Bowl parties, one of Tom Brady and the other of Russell Wilson.

These pieces were auctioned at Leather and Laces Super Bowl party, and the proceeds went to Generation Rescue. Generation Rescue is a nonprofit organization that raises money and awareness for children with autism. The cause hits close to home for Benger, who has a son with autism.

Benger also finished a painting of the Vince Lombardi trophy at a live demonstration for prominent sports agent Leigh Steinberg’s party.

Prints of Benger’s work will be available at Bretbengerart.com.
