This is one of the largest of the 300 pieces of art that will be displayed at SunTrust Park. It's by John Robertson of Malibu, California, depicting Dale Murphy leaping to rob a home run.

You may not be going to SunTrust Park for the art, but at least you’ll have something to look at if the Braves are down five runs and things aren’t looking good.

The team announced Wednesday that there will be 300 baseball-inspired pieces of art inside and around the stadium.

A-R-T & Associates, based north of Chamblee, will manage the collection. The styles range from portraits and macro photography to 70 oversized vintage Topps baseball cards. 

Some pieces will be from local artists, while other displays will be from international artists displaying their work in America for the first time.

Belgian artist Dominique Lobbestael, for example, who will have portraits of 10 Braves legends in the stadium: Hank Aaron, Bobby Cox, Tom Glavine, Chipper Jones, Greg Maddux, Eddie Mathews, Dale Murphy, Phil Niekro, John Smoltz and Warren Spahn.

One of the most prominent pieces will be an appropriately colored tomahawk made from more than 17,000 LEGO bricks by Alpharetta artist Jason Williams.

Included in the 300 pieces will be a statue of Hank Aaron, which was revealed in a March 29 ceremony , by Bulgarian-born artist Ross Rossin who now lives in Atlanta.
