The mural features Mitchell painted in Utah Jazz alternate colors of red, yellow, and orange.

Local artists Chuck Landvatter, and Jared Andrew Smith created the mural.

Speaking about the Donovan Mitchell Bridge, Jacklyn Briggs marketing director for The Gateway said:

The Donovan Mitchell Bridge sits along the path of other Utah Jazz greats like Karl Malone Drive (100 South) and John Stockton Drive (300 West), a symbol of the promise the future holds for both the Utah Jazz and The Gateway. We're proud to be in this neighborhood and serve as a key player in the revival of the west side as it develops into Salt Lake's premier sports, arts and entertainment district.”

Thousands of Jazz fans were on hand to witness the dedication, which officials say aims to energize downtown Salt Lake’s “Sports, Arts and Entertainment District."

Mitchell met with fans, took pictures. and signed autographs.
