The Milwaukee Bucks on Friday unveiled the artwork that'll surround fans at Fiserv Forum. 

The public can get a glimpse of the various paintings, pictures and sculptures at the arena's official opening on Sunday. 

The art collection includes 79 original pieces and 43 photographs, created by 32 artists and 170 students. Twenty-two of the artists chosen as part of the project have ties to Wisconsin. 

"Certainly, the success of a building like this is about content - what shows you have, and how your team wins an NBA Championship," said Bucks President Peter Feigin. "But having the environment be rich and plentiful is a major part of that success also, and how people enjoy the building itself." 

One of the artists represented at Fiserv Forum is Milwaukee-based photographer Margaret Muza. 

Two of her photographs, captured and developed using a process that date's back to the 1800's, hang in the new arena. 

"To see it here, in this beautiful space, is incredible," Muza said. 

"I think it's important to bridge two communities together: the art world and the sports world, which I don't think are often lumped together," Muza said. "It's cool to have my work introduced to a different audience in Milwaukee."
