1) I’m on vacation! Hence why there have been no new objects since Tuesday.
2) Has anyone been following the #museumolympics tag on twitter? It started with the San Fran branch of the MOMA. Museums across the United States (and some international too) have been getting into the sporting spirit by posting athletic-themed art, objects, or specimens complete with sassy captions. Above is my current favourite courtesy of the Royal Ontario Museum. I guess they’ve got to make up for that crystal somehow.
On February 6, 1936, the IV Olympic Winter Games officially opened in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany. This commemorative postcard sent to the actress Katharine Hepburn shows the picturesque town in the Bavarian Alps that played host to more than 600 athletes from 28 countries.
One of the competition’s most notable triumphs was that of Norwegian figure skater Sonja Henie, who earned her third consecutive gold medal that year. She is pictured here training for the 1932 Lake Placid Games at the Ice Club in New York City. After the Games, Henie ended her amateur career and journeyed to Hollywood, where she signed a long-term contract to star in films for Twentieth Century-Fox. Her dazzling performances on ice in movies like One in a Million (1937) delighted audiences and helped popularize figure skating in the United States and around the world.
