As football fans around the country look forward to the excitement of Super Bowl XLIX, The Associated Press is recognizing the game’s rich history with a photo exhibit near the University of Phoenix Stadium, where the big game will be played.

“Super Moments, Superstars, Super Game—An Associated Press Exhibit” opens with a reception on Friday, Jan. 9, at Gallery Glendale, 9830 W. Westgate Blvd., in Glendale, Arizona.

Featuring 50 compelling AP images, including a photo from every Super Bowl game since the first in 1967, the exhibit will showcase the trials and triumphs of football’s biggest contest. The 2014 championship was the most-watched television event in U.S. history.

“AP photojournalists have been documenting the Super Bowl since it began,” said Santiago Lyon, AP vice president and director of photography. “We’re thrilled to offer some of their best work ahead of this year’s game.”

The exhibit, which is free, will be open on Fridays and Saturdays in January, as well as on Sunday, Jan. 25 (Pro Bowl game day), and on Sunday, Feb. 1 (Super Bowl Sunday), from 10 a.m. until 7 p.m. PST.

AP Images, the commercial photo unit of AP, is the exclusive commercial photo partner for the NFL, providing powerful and unique imagery of games, athletes and special events. In 1996, AP became the first news organization to cover a Super Bowl without film, using only digital cameras, at Super Bowl XXX in Tempe, Arizona.

For complete AP news coverage of the NFL visit the AP Pro32 Digital News Experience, an embeddable package of Web-exclusive coverage produced by AP’s sports staff, or download the AP Mobile app on iTunes or Google Play.

Gallery Glendale at Westgate is made possible through a partnership between the City of Glendale and Westgate Entertainment District.
