BIG TIME, SO MUCH LARGER THAN LIFE: SHAQ/REEBOK MURAL OK'D
Published June 28, 1996
The Atlanta Urban Design Commissioner has given the OK to a scaled-down proposal for a mural of Shaquille O'Neal on a downtown shoe store, according to Kent Walker of the ATLANTA CONSTITUTION. The commissioner had rejected a "mammoth" 60-by-80 foot mural, but a 10 1/2 by 20 1/2 foot sign of the Dream Teamer was approved. The new sign, on Friedman's Shoes, will be a Reebok logo with a "shadowed O'Neal jumping out of it" and will read "Visit Planet Reebok at Freeman's Shoes" (ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, 6/28).
