City of Cleveland to review familiar LeBron mural

Wednesday September 17th, 2014

The city of Cleveland will review a proposed LeBron James mural that will hang from the side of the city's Sherwin-Williams building, according to a report on WKYC

"The City Design Review Commission and Planning Commission will review the proposed artwork at their meetings later this week,"  WKYC's Tom Beres wrote.

If approved, the mural will face Quicken Loans Arena, the home of Cavaliers. The banner would be the second the building has had that features James. In 2010, as part of a campaign to keep James from signing with another team, the building featured a multi-story banner depicting James throwing up chalk with the text 'We Are All Witnesses' written across the top.

The new banner will employ a similar image, but reportedly not contain the slogan at the top.

The new LeBron banner would replace a mural of Cleveland's skyline.
