El Dorado Arts Council’s latest exhibition will celebrate the 1960 Winter Olympics.
This curated exhibition of art, memorabilia, and promotional items from the 1960 Winter Olympics in Squaw Valley runs Jan. 12-March 9 at the organization’s Fausel House Gallery in Placerville.
Generously loaned from the Museum of Sierra Ski History and 1960 Winter Olympics, and collector Stan Batiste, the items on display in this exhibition are unique to their time.
Photographs capture the excitement of the spectators and champions alike, maps of the competition trails artistically show where the triumphs and losses occurred, and souvenirs exemplify the magic of the day.
The public opening reception takes place Jan. 18 from 6-8pm. Collector Stan Batiste, author David C. Antonucci, and official Olympic photographer Bill Briner will also be in attendance to celebrate the opening of The Games of Winter and recapture the camaraderie of the 1960 Winter Olympic Games. Attendance and parking are free.
