"We want SunTrust Park to feel like more than just a ballpark to our fans - we want it to feel like a home," said Braves President of Business Derek Schiller. "These original works of art, many of which were commissioned from local artists, create an intimate and familiar environment in SunTrust Park, making Braves Country feel right at home."
Notable artists contributing to the installation include:
Dominique Lobbestael - Brussels, Belgium
The Belgian native painted energetic portraits of ten Braves legends for the Delta SKY360 Club - the list includes Hank Aaron, Bobby Cox, Tom Glavine, Chipper Jones, Greg Maddux, Eddie Mathews, Dale Murphy, Phil Niekro, John Smoltz and Warren Spahn. This project marks Dominique's first work in the United States.
Jason Williams - Alpharetta, Ga.
Jason is an emerging artist who uses LEGO bricks to create awe-inspiring mosaics. His latest piece "Tomahawk", which is built on a LEGO count of 27,745 studs and more than 17,000 individual LEGO bricks, is featured in the main entrance corridor.
John Robertson - Malibu, Calif.
Robertson is known for his impressionistic work and created three of the largest paintings in SunTrust Park for display in the Delta SKY360 Club. The paintings feature scenes of Dale Murphy leaping to rob a home run, Chipper Jones hitting a home run and David Justice sliding in safe across home plate.
Pouya Dianat and BEAM Imagination - Atlanta, Ga.
