SAN ANTONIO - Before the Spurs kicked off their playoff run fans gathered in the AT&T Center for a special unveiling.

A group of dancers got the mood going as the Spurs prepared to unveil their latest attraction to the San Antonio faithful.

It was a gift to Spurs fans from Spurs fans.

“The Spurs brought new life to our mural,” mural artist Shek Vega said. “It was always something to push us forward, and we're happy that we can share it with the city.”

San Antonio artists Nik Soupe and Vega's latest piece, entitled ‘Soy 2-1-0’ pays homage to the team's 2017 playoff rallying cry ‘Go Spurs Go in the 2-1-0.’

And, much like the team itself, there's so much more than meets the eye.

“It's not just something that people can see, but people can also be a part of it,” Soupe said.

By downloading a special augmented reality app, fans can become part of the art as the painting moves, dances, and comes alive.

Another reason for San Antonian's to get pumped, but according to Soupe and Vega, it won't be the last.

The duo said they have a few things in the works and fans will just have to wait and see.

For those who get the see the mural in person at the AT&T Center, you can view the interactive version through an app called "EyeJack.” The app is available for free on both Android and iPhone.
