Grand Rapids Art Exhibit Celebrates The Olympics

A new exhibit celebrating the Olympics and western Michigan athletes is going on display. The exhibit titled “An Olympic View” opens Saturday at the Grand Rapids Public Museum. It allows visitors to learn more about this summer’s host city of Rio de Janeiro as well as the history of ancient Greece. Artifacts include jewelry and Brazilian coins. In the modern era, the museum says a dozen athletes from Grand Rapids have
competed in the Olympics. “An Olympic View” also lets visitors explore the locations of the modern Olympics. And an interactive photo opportunity allows visitors to pose as a gold medalist. The display, which is being promoted as a mini-exhibit, ends August 21.
