Baltimore only needs to make a short trip to DC in order to see the latest photo coverage from the winter Olympics. The Newseum and AFP are partnering once again to provide Newseum visitors with the very best of AFP's photo coverage of the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. Each day, an AFP photo editor will select images representing the best of the global news agency's daily production of more than 2,000 photographs of the Olympic Games. Don't worry if you forgot to bring your glasses. The AFP photos will be shown in high definition on the massive 40-by-22-foot media screen in the Newseum's atrium from Feb. 6 to 28. The display will be updated regularly to showcase the latest highlights of the Olympic Games.
AFP will provide comprehensive, real-time coverage of the Sochi Olympics in text, photo, video and graphics. AFP has been on the ground since Sochi was named in 2007 to hold this year's Olympic Games, monitoring preparations for the event and following athletes as they arrive to compete. AFP is sending 70 special envoys of 17 nationalities to cover the games, providing text and video reports in six languages, photos, live reports and more.
Current exhibits at Newseum include “Civil Rights at 50”, “Creating Camelot”, and in partnership with Paramount Pictures,they are presenting "Anchorman: The Exhibit" with Ron Burgundy.
If you can't make it to DC, the Sochi photos also will be available on the Newseum's website.
