Budweiser has commissioned a nearly 21,000-square-foot mural in midtown Manhattan to hype the Olympics ahead of the Rio Games, part of an expanded campaign for the official Team USA malt beverage sponsor. To create the artwork, the beer brand returned to French artist Malika Favre, who designed its patriotic “Lady Liberty” packaging in 2014. Her art will depict seven Olympians and Paralympians recently signed to endorsement deals in a highly patriotic context, said Ricardo Marques, vice president of marketing. “It’s basically focused on creating an epic, heroic tribute to each of these athletes,” Marques said. “It’s a very exciting piece of art. It’s a big, big piece.”
