SALT LAKE CITY — It’s been 10 years since Salt Lake City hosted the Winter Olympic Games. The Utah Ski Archives, part of the Special Collections Department at the J. Willard Marriott Library at the University of Utah, will be hosting the Olympic Experience Exhibition to mark the occasion.
The exhibition, which runs from Feb. 1 through 29, is free and open to the public and will highlight the many Utah residents — volunteers, athletes, and staff — who participated in the Olympic Games and the events on the University of Utah campus.
During the 2002 Olympic Winter Games, the University of Utah hosted the opening and closing ceremonies at the Rice-Eccles Stadium and the Olympic Village lodged athletes.
To document the U.'s role in hosting the games, the Special Collections Department asked the university community who was involved with the Olympics to donate their photos to the Special Collections Department. More than 4,000 photographs have been archived, creating the Olympic Experience collection.
The exhibit is in the George S. Eccles Reading Room on level 4 of the library.
