An exhibition by
In ancient Olympic Games, which date back to 776 BC, artistic expression played a key role. Sculptors and other artists and craftsmen were encouraged to display their works. When Baron Pierre de Coubertin revived the Olympic Games in 1896, sport, arts, and culture were all included in his vision. In 1912 he organized five “Olympic art competitions” for the first time at the Olympic Games in Stockholm. While arts and culture components may have faded over time, the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi inspired Studio Georgeville to revive the traditional link, creating an exhibition to celebrate the art of several Canadian Olympians, Till October 5th, 2014.
