A sports-themed mural proposed for the Morgan Falls Athletic Fields complex, funded by the Atlanta Hawks Foundation, got another look from the City Council at its July 7 meeting.
Proposed last year by Art Sandy Springs and the foundation for the Hawks, Atlanta’s pro basketball team, the mural would depict children playing various sports, and the slogan “Play Together.”
The deal lets the Hawks use the mural in promotional materials, and commits its foundation to maintaining the artwork for seven years. Besides a free mural, the city gets two Hawks season tickets.
Councilman Andy Bauman said a plan is needed to make sure those tickets are used by “underprivileged kids” or someone similarly deserving.
The council will be asked to formally approve the mural deal at its next meeting.
