SPURS MURAL ON MAIN PLAZA FOR THE SUMMER

SECOND INTERACTIVE SPURS MURAL UNVEILED AT MAIN PLAZA DURING FIESTA TO STAY ON MAIN PLAZA THROUGH THE SUMMER OF 2017!

Piece Titled ‘¡Viva Coyote!’ by Local Artists Los Otros is Part of ‘Go Spurs Go in the 2-1-0’ Playoffs Theme

Fans Can Take Photos Through Augmented Reality App EyeJack to Bring Mural to Life

The San Antonio Spurs unveiled a second Spurs 2017 Playoffs mural on Thursday, April 27 in Main Plaza. The piece, titled ‘¡Viva Coyote!’, was created by San Antonio artists Nik Soupe and Shek Vega of Los Otros Murals<http://losotrosmurals.com/our-team/>. The eight-foot-by-12-foot spray paint and acrylic on board piece features the Spurs mascot with a Fiesta® San Antonio motif. Soupe and Vega recently revealed a mural titled ‘Soy 210’ at the AT&T Center to launch the team’s 2017 NBA Playoffs theme, ‘Go Spurs Go in the 2-1-0’ (pronounced two-one-oh). Both murals feature a unique digital animation design element through the augmented reality app EyeJack.

Visit Spurs.com/mural<http://www.nba.com/spurs/mural> to download the app on Android and iOS devices to bring the artwork to life in shareable videos.

The ‘Go Spurs Go in the 2-1-0’ campaign is an extension of 2016 postseason theme ‘Paint the Town Silver & Black’, linking the team with the city and the fans, and celebrating the time of year when the Alamo City comes together for Spurs Playoffs, Fiesta, and Cinco de Mayo. Spurs fans from all over the world can represent the vibrancy of The 2-1-0. Visit Spurs.com/fanguide<http://www.nba.com/spurs/fanguide> for more information on the Spurs 2017 Playoffs.
