Description This photograph was taken from the first row during an exciting evening of track and field where the women's Olympic pole vault record was shattered and Usain Bolt jogged to a 200 M quarterfinal victory.
Matthew Marotta, New York City Member Since September 2008 Artist Statement I have spent the last decade mostly living in New York City, but have also had the pleasure of traveling extensively throughout China and Korea. In 1999, I went to Beijing for the first time as a student in an intensive four-month Mandarin training program. Since then, I've experienced a magical love affair with the country and its people that has allowed me to return on numerous occasions as a student, a professional and most recently as a attendee of the Beijing Olympics. They are some of my favorites. Thanks for taking a look.
