The new Sherwin-Williams Entrance includes a fully-immersive 360-tunnel, a sculpture, and spectacular views.

Officials from the Cleveland Cavaliers, Rocket Mortgage, and Sherwin-Williams were on hand Thursday for the event.

A second entrance, named for the Northeast Ohio mining company Cleveland-Cliffs, will be commemorated on Friday.

The FieldHouse is home to a new art display privately funded by Cavaliers Chairman Dan Gilbert and his wife, featuring over 100 pieces in the collection.

It also features a mesmerizing 77,110-square-foot light curtain wall that can be illuminated with 1,500 different color combinations.
