Sporting events

This gallery has to do with the Olympic Games of 1996 that were held in Atlanta, Georgia, USA. As depicted in the painting the Olympic Games had a huge impact on the city of Atlanta. I stuck with pieces of art that are relevant to the Summer Olympic Games. Some pieces are not necessarily of competitive games, but they are basic, which also could go back to the original games that were played in the first Olympics.

This is an image of Atlanta. The front of the image represents it from the late 1800's. As the picture progresses from front to back it is seen what the games did to the town.
This is a player that has been playing tennis or is getting ready to play. Tennis has long been one of the more relaxed events of the Olympic Games.
This is one of the calm paintings. Volleyball is a very competitive game, but it has only become that way in the last 30 years since being in the Olympics. This reminds of a time when it was relaxed.
Archery has been a part of the games since the beginning. It has always been a competitive sport and even though shooting is starting to make a case to take over, it is still important to some.
This painting is not taking place during any action, but soccer has just become an Olympic sport in the past ten years. Because of this, it is important to be included as some of the newer culture.
Basketball, a game predominately dominated by the United States. It has been in the Olympics since the invention of the game. It is important to the games because many countries are becoming stronger.
Baseball went through a couple games of not being in, but was quickly reinstated and is a big revenue boost. Many countries rely on baseball as a way out, so it being back in the games helps.
Gymnastics is last, but certainly not least. It is one of the most important events and is where most competition is. Athletes from every country train for this year round, making it most competitive.
