More on the 2012 Olympics

Organizers of the 2012 London Olympics have revealed the official posters for the event. The 12 posters will be seen in schools, sports centers, and other public venues and will also be available as souvenirs.

The posters are art that, for the most part, features few athletic images. Instead, the images are more abstract.

Among the artists who created the official posters are Anthea Hamilton, Fiona Banner, Martin Creed, Michael Craig-Martin, Howard Hodgkin, Gary Hume, Chris Ofili, Bridget Riley, Bob and Roberta Smith, and Rachel Whiteread.

See individual closeups here.

The Opening Ceremonies, on July 27, and the Closing Ceremonies, on August 12, will bookend a total of 302 medal events in 26 sports. The full schedule is here.
