The San Jose Sharks have had a significant hand in the Bay Area's growth in the past 25 years, and their hometown is celebrating them for it.

The Sharks were featured in a new mural that celebrates the past two-and-a-half decades at SAP Center that was unveiled Thursday.

The Sharks and SAP Center have been observing the arena's 25th anniversary for the past year, and the mural unveiling continued that celebration. Aside from the Sharks-related section, the picture pays homage to the world-class musicians, entertainers, athletes and events that have come to San Jose since the building opened Sept. 7, 1993.

The mural was designed by Jeff McMillan and Gary Musgrave, two Bay Area-based artists known as The Draculas, and sits about a mile from SAP Center on San Fernando Street in downtown San Jose. They also took their own experiences into consideration when producing the finished product, which landed them a selfie with Sharks mascot SJ Sharkie.
