The rust-belt city of Milwaukee, WI, used public funds to commission an eccentric, openly-gay artist Robert Indiana to paint the Bucks basketball floor in the 1970’s. But after the Bucks moved across the street to the newly constructed Bradley Center, the MECCA Arena floor was left in storage and all but forgotten by the general public.

"The story of how a pop art genius turned an NBA floor into a masterpiece."
