Description

In celebration of the 20th anniversary of the Atlanta Centennial Olympic Games and in collaboration with Hearst Castle, California, the Michael C. Carlos Museum, and Oglethorpe University, "The Games: Ancient Olympia to Atlanta to Rio" features Ancient Greek artifacts, many of which exceed 2,500 years of age. These items tell the history of the Olympic Games and Ancient Olympia, athletic competition, and Greek mythology and politics. The exhibit also examines the impact the modern Olympics had on the built environment of Atlanta and will have on the next host city, Rio de Janeiro.
