About

As part of its role in preserving the documentary evidence of Richmond’s participation in the 2010 Olympic Winter Games, the City of Richmond Archives approached the Richmond Photo Club to provide the expertise of its members in capturing a photographic record of the O Zone celebration site.

22 volunteer photographers submitted approximately 2,000 images of the O Zone documenting all 17 days of activities, as well as the Olympic Torch Relay through Richmond. These images are now part of the permanent holdings of the Archives.

The images on display here represent a small sample of the O Zone photo documentation project. We hope that they help rekindle the feelings of excitement and pride felt by the community in February 2010.

This exhibit has been made possible with the support of the City of Richmond Archives, Friends of the Richmond Archives and Richmond Arts Services.

Minoru Hall is an informal exhibition space that features lens-based and community artwork year-round. Contributors are wide-ranging, including Council appointed programs, as well as partnerships and special projects from City Archives and Arts, Culture and Heritage Services.
