Art of the Olympians Museum

Olympic discus thrower Al Oerter helped to organize an exhibit called 'Art of the Olympians', which collected the work of 14 Games veterans, including Bob Beamon, Cammy Myler, and Shane Gould. The exhibit traveled to New York City, and finally found a permanent home in a waterfront gallery in Fort Myers, Florida.

The gallery includes a large collection of art from a diverse group of Olympians turned artists, such as Peggy Fleming, Florence Griffith Joyner, Cammy Myler, Shane Gould, Liston Bochette and Bob Beamon.

The museum is located at 1300 Hendry Street, Fort Myers, Florida 33901.
