Olympic Legacy is Alive in Park City
Park City Municipal, in partnership with Alf Engen Museum, is excited to share the Legacy Alive Olympic exhibit. Sponsored by a Summit County Restaurant Tax grant, Legacy Alive is compiled of various exhibits and curated experiences throughout town that raise awareness about Park City’s 2002 Olympic legacy, the 2019 FIS World Championships, and a potential Salt Lake City Olympic bid.
Myles Rademan, Park City’s former Public Affairs Director and a prominent figure in the 2002 Olympics, explains how the 2002 games changed Park City. “The Olympics celebrated much of what we residents already know and love about Park City – strong sense of community and history, love of recreation and sport, and unparalleled hospitality.”
Keep an eye out for Olympic artifacts, photography exhibits, and other experiences in Park City this winter and fall. Exhibit pieces and locations are:
The Fire Within photo exhibit at on the third floor of City Hall (*and Olympic posters on the first floor of City Hall)
International Flags in the Egyptian Theatre alley
