Gifts from the Gods: Art and the Olympic Ideal



Gifts from the Gods: Art and the Olympic Ideal
UNITED STATES
SAN FRANCISCO  •  Legion of Honor  •  Ongoing
 
This exhibition, coinciding with the opening of the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, draws together outstanding examples of art related to the Olympics from its ancient roots until today to reveal the continuity of the Olympic ideal and the rich and diverse expressions of the body in motion. Masterpieces of Greek and Roman coinage that celebrate the Olympic Games, the gods, and the victorious athletes are supplemented by additional works of art from the Museumsí collections inspired by modern-day Olympics.
