Olympics All Over: Exhibits, exhibits!

It’s that time–where Olympics seem to surround us and make us anticipate the games even more as fans. This part of the blog documents what we see around us in the upcoming months. ENJOY!

I’ve notices a few museum exhibits that reference sports and the Olympics:

1) National Museum of American Indian has an exhibit called “Best in the World: Native Athletes in the Olympics” highlighting greats like Jim Thorpe and Duke Kahanamoku.

2) The Newseum has “Photo Finish: The Sports Photography of Neil Leifer“… the collection has some great sports moments, not just ones from the Olympics.

Both of these museums are in Washington, D.C. Comment back to the post if you’ve seen any in your area! I think it’s really cool how the Olympics is getting tied into so many things. 🙂
