Madison Park artist "does" the Olympics
When comes to win, place, or show at this year's Summer Olympics, for Broadmoor's Paul Mullally, it's definitely case of show--art show, that is. Mullally has the honor of having one of his pieces included in the Olympic Fine Arts 2012 Exhibition, being held next month at the Museum of London. Mullally's oil painting "Alaska Bound - Triumph of the Spirit" (shown above) depicts part of the Alaska fishing fleet docked at Seattle's Fishermen's Terminal.
The aim of the Exhibition is to disseminate and exalt the Olympic spirit and ideals through different works of art from different cultures and in different mediums. Some 500 "contemporary works of art of the highest aesthetic and technical levels" are being shown as part of Exhibition. The participating artists were invited after their work received a positive evaluation by the organizing committee for the Exhibition.
Mullally recently told The Seattle Times's Melissa Davis that he chose this work for submission because he felt that fishing the Arctic waters "expresses what it means to have unity of spirit in pursuit of a common goal."
