Chicago Olympics 2016 VIII by spudart Chicago Olympics 2016 VIII by spudart
I've posted seven photos of posters for the Chicago bid for the 2016 Olympics. I was gonna make some postcards of the previous seven photos to mail for postcrossing.com project. As I was digging through my archives, I found this photo that I never posted.

Never seen photo from the archives!

About the posters:

Chicago is making a bid to host the Olympics in 2016. Billboards and posters went up in the Loop area of downtown Chicago the weekend before the U.S. Olympic Committee came to visit Chicago to evaluate Chicago's venues and plans for the 2016 Summer Olympic Games. The posters say, "Stir the Soul."

"Stir the Soul" comes from the famous Daniel Burnham quote, "Make no little plans; they have no magic to stir men's blood and probably themselves will not be realized. Make big plans; aim high in hope and work, remembering that a noble, logical diagram once recorded will not die, but long after we are gone be a living thing, asserting itself with ever-growing insistence."

-Daniel Burnham, 1910

Thanks to my twin brother, Erik, for instant messaging his idea to me that I shoot these posters.
