Create Your Own Impact Art

September 19 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

Celebrate Olympic discus champion Al Oerter with us! Oerter who would have turned 85 on Sept. 19 was the first athlete to win the same Olympic event four times in a row and the first athlete to set four consecutive Olympic records. Following his athletic career, Oerter made “impact” paintings by throwing a discus at paint covered canvases. Join us on Sunday, September 19 from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. Guests will be invited to ignite their creativity by making their own impact art. Two of Oerter’s artifacts – an original painting and autographed discus used in Olympic competition – will also be on display.
