About:

Art of the Olympians Museum and Gallery (AOTO)in Fort Myers will embark on a journey to London for the 2012 Games to inspire individuals through a unique pop-up exhibition.

The exhibition brings together Olympic memorabilia, artwork by Olympians, interactive opportunities and engaging exhibits showcasing an athlete’s personal journey.

What started with one man’s vision, the late Al Oerter, four-time consecutive Olympic gold medalist in discus, has grown into a worldwide initiative driven by a family of more than 70 international Olympian Artists. These Olympians are working to bring two passions – art and sport – together in education for the goal of encouraging individuals to discover their best.

Today the artistic and educational initiatives of the museum are directed by Olympic Legend Bob Beamon, best known for his world record in the long jump at the 1968 Olympic Games in Mexico, which has remained unchallenged for 43 years.
