The Associated Press

The Green Bay Packers are getting ready to induct two new members to the franchise’s Hall of Fame, and the club level of Lambeau Field saw a small offseason makeover that might intrigue the hardcore fans.

All-time leading receiver Donald Driver and ball-hawking cornerback Mark Lee will be honored Saturday at a banquet at Lambeau Field.

Driver had 743 catches for 10,137 yards to lead all Packers receivers. His 62 career touchdowns are fifth in franchise history.

The four-time Pro Bowler played in 205 games over 14 seasons with the Packers. He retired after playing 13 games in the 2012 season.

Lee had 31 interceptions in 11 seasons in Green Bay. He missed just eight games during his Packers career, appearing in 157 games and making 139 starts.

After 11 seasons with the Packers, Lee went on to play for New Orleans and San Francisco in 1991 before retiring.

Fans walking around the club level of Lambeau Field will get a chance to see unique artwork as the Green Bay Packers have unveiled more than 500 pieces of original art, unique photos and graphics celebrating the team’s legacy.

The collection includes pieces from 19 commissioned artists. The art represents memorable games, championships, players, coaches, fans and the community. It also includes a large number of rarely seen historical photographs provided by the Green Bay Press-Gazette.

The Packers worked with Sports & The Arts on the collection. SATA develops and curates large-scale art collections for sports and entertainment venues.
