This week at the Museum... 24.02-01.03.09

Olympic’Art exhibition
Until 1 March 2009
Sport and art are universal languages - two traditions that lie at the heart of civilisation itself. The founder of the modern Olympic Games, Pierre de Coubertin, envisioned the Olympiad as more than just a celebration of physical strength. Rather, he felt it should be endowed with an artistic and moral dimension that more closely aligned body and spirit. Through Olympic’Art, visitors can view the history of the Olympism as a fascinating chapter in the history or art… unless it is the other way round.
