The countdown to Super Bowl 53 in Atlanta looms large over the city. Atlanta has hosted the big game twice before, in 1994 and again in 2000. Now, the city is prepping to host the Super Bowl in 2019 at the shiny, new Mercedes-Benz Stadium. And a sizable art project is part of the larger initiative to leave a lasting impression from the game. (Video by Ryon Horne/ AJC, Erica Hernandez/AJC)
