Making Tracks
February 2005
By G. Brown Design & Cliff Garten Studio
honoring Park City’s role in hosting the
XIX Olympic Winter Games

For 17 days in February 2002, the world watched with admiration as Park City
hosted athletes from many countries in the best Olympic Winter Games ever.
To honor and forever remember this achievement the citizens of Park City
dedicate this Olympic inspired sculpture.

This fantastic sculpture is nestled just off Highway 224 before you get to Park City. Of course there’s the obvious ski jump reference in the one part, but it also captures the dynamic motion of sport and alludes to the Olympic rings. I enjoyed the play of light and shadow, and how the piece frames the view.
