ATLANTA (AP) - A mural at Atlanta’s airport featuring smiling children at Centennial Olympic Park has been covered by a Porsche advertisement.

The mural was painted by Atlanta artist Deborah Whitehouse and has greeted travelers making their way up the escalators toward baggage claim for 15 years.

Airport spokesman Reese McCranie says the Porsche ad will eventually be replaced by a digital screen that will promote Atlanta events, offer airport information and may feature other advertisements.

Porsche recently developed offices near the airport.

McCranie says airport officials want to preserve the mural and are working to find a permanent location for it.
