Notre Dame years

At Notre Dame he played under head coach Frank Leahy who was the former line coach for the Seven Blocks of Granite and played shoulder-to-shoulder with guard Menil Mavraides, center Jim Schrader, and fullback Neil Worden as the main blockers for Heisman Trophy winning running back Johnny Lattner.

His senior year, the 1953 Notre Dame team finished the season 9–1, and had an unprecedented 12 players drafted to 1954 NFL draft.

In a September 13, 1954 Sports Illustrated article, writer Herman Hickman describes the 1953 Notre Dame team by writing:

Frankly, it's hard to see how any squad could lose such men as Halfback Johnny Lattner, Fullback Neil Worden, Tackle Art Hunter, Center Jim Schrader and Guard Menil Mavraides and still be a top-ranked team. Each was on some All-American or other. Lattner, Worden and Hunter were first-round Pro draft choices. Schrader was a second-round choice. Mavraides a third. But Notre Dame is not an ordinary football team, it's Notre Dame. . . . Notre Dame doesn't lose too often.

NFL career

Listed at 6' 4" and 245 lbs, Hunter first played for the Green Bay Packers as their number one draft choice (Number 3 overall). After not playing the 1955 season, Arthur, then went on to play under head coach Paul Brown, with Jim Brown and the rest of the Cleveland Browns for four seasons as Center. He then played Center for five years with the slumping Rams, and finally one year with the Steelers.[1] Over Hunter's twelve seasons with the NFL he recovered four fumbles. In 1960, he was an AP second-team All-NFL selection.

The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living

The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living is an artwork created in 1991 by Damien Hirst, an English artist and a leading member of the "Young British Artists" (or YBA). It consists of a tiger shark preserved in formaldehyde in a vitrine. It was originally commissioned in 1991 by Charles Saatchi, who sold it in 2004, to Steven A. Cohen for an undisclosed amount, widely reported to have been at least $8 million. However, the title of Don Thompson's book, The $12 Million Stuffed Shark: The Curious Economics of Contemporary Art, suggests a higher figure.

Owing to deterioration of the original 14-foot (4.3 m) tiger shark, it was replaced with a new specimen in 2006. It was on loan to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City from 2007 to 2010.It is considered the iconic work of British art in the 1990s, and has become a symbol of Britart worldwide.
