Keep an eye out for a unique exhibit at the Athlete Reception on Monday, Aug. 1 at 7:30 p.m.We’ve asked artists—all Veterans—to showcase their creativity in a display. The result? A collection of artwork that highlights the exceptional spirit of our athletes, our country and our city. Some of the artists also are competing in this year’s Games!
