Art of the Olympians (AOTO) is a global learning center, which brings together Olympic athletes to promote the highest ideals of humanity. Through their creative talents, AOTO is able to provide programs of art, education, sport and cultural outreach to showcase the sport/art relationship and begin to inspire the world.
The AOTO Museum and Gallery at the Al Oerter Center for Excellence, is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization home to unique exhibitions of Olympian art, Olympic memorabilia and educational activities. The Museum and Gallery opened its doors in January 2010 with great notoriety and later secured the rights to display the USA Olympic Rings – an act protected by Congress.
The Exhibit: In our Museum downstairs we will have all Olympic Memorabilia from past Olympics and Olympians. We also have facts and artifacts from the Ancient and Modern Day Olympics. As well as interactive exhibits where you can try your hand at some Olympic Sports like; Table Tennis, Archery and Cycling. We also have agility tests and track and field training equipment.
Upstairs in the Art Gallery where we feature and sell artwork done by Olympians, we will have a show featuring Paralympian Gregory Burns that will run through November.
This venue will accept your Museum Day Live! ticket on the screen of your smartphone.
