Art fit for the Olympics

Listen to this story
Keep a close eye on the summer Olympics coverage, not just for the athletes but the art, too. Two large, outdoor sculptures with ties to the Adirondacks are in Beijing's Olympic Sculpture Park. The stone and metal pieces are two of fifty outdoor sculptures on display. The exhibition aims to promote international cultural links. Stone sculptors John Van Alstine and Caroline Ramersdorfer visited Beijing last year to supervise the start of construction. Both have installed art in galleries and public spaces around the world. This time, they're among 50 people, 25 from China and 25 from elsewhere, displaying their artwork around Olympic venues. Todd Moe visited their southern Adirondack studio to find out what it's like for artists to make it to the Olympics.
