Florida Vacation Guide: Add Art Of The Olympians Museum to your “to do in Florida” list

The late Al Oerter won four gold medals in as many consecutive Olympic Games even though he was never favored to win. Oerter beat the odds and overcame adversity by working hard to be at his very best – to achieve excellence. He made it his own personal mission to encourage other individuals to strive for excellence in all avenues of life (sport, art and education) and discover passions of their own.

The Art Of The Olympians Museum has developed from Oerter’s vision into an educational center and international outreach initiative made up of more than 70 Olympian Artists.
