Project/Mission: U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Training Center
SCULPTURES OF PARALYMPIANS
In 2019, Gina has created and installed three painted sculptures of Paralympic athletes at the U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Training Center Visitor Center in Colorado Springs. The purpose of this exhibit is to show what is possible in life for persons who have disabilities. The USOPC has purchased one of the sculpture and is budgeting to secure the other two.
Next we would like to create a 22' x 20' sculptural mural in the USOPTC Ted Stevens Sports Services Center. This facility is the central hub of activity for all athletes who train, compete and reside at the Colorado Springs Olympic & Paralympic Training Center. My mural will represent both Olympic and Paralympic athletes. It's purpose is to inspire all athletes to overcome injuries, aging, defeat, and other set-backs, and to instill a sense of joy in their training regimen.
• Guess Who's Who
• The subject models' stories
Lastly for the Colorado Springs training center, the USOPC wants a painted sculpture of Paralympian Noah Elliot, 3x Gold Medalist skate and snow boarder, for the other stairwell inside Ted Stevens.
Design, sculpting, painting, constructing, assistants, materials (based on 5 subject models) $55,000
Project development, coordination, transportation $2,000
Promotional photography $1,400
SCULPTURES AT THE OPTC VISITOR CENTER (2) $16,000
Begin now. Media outlets are seeking unique personal stories for the August 2020 Olympic and Paralympic competitions.
P.S. Upon completion of the mural, the USOPC is interested in having more of my sculptures of elite athletes installed in other U.S. OPTC locations, and possibly at the Olympic and Para events.
