In order to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Air Jordan 1 shoes, Nike is bringing sports and art together for a special event called Museum 23 Tokyo at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Tokyo.

At the free event at the public museum, people will be able to see a recreation of the court from the 1998 NBA Finals, when sports legend Michael Jordan was named NBA Most Valuable Player for the sixth year. These iconic moments in sports history will be replicated through a digital installation, which relives the final minutes of the game.

The event will also feature a selection of footwear from the Air Jordan series, as well as 'Jumpman Projection,' which is a projection of Michael Jordan photographs that was created by crowdsourcing from fans.
