Never before has an Olympic city been adorned with artwork on
the scale of the 12 posters that are draped around Salt Lake.
The images were captured by photographer John Huet, digitally
manipulated, enlarged and then hung during the weeks before the
Games. The tallest banner, on the Church Office building, is 289
feet high. The most arresting? You be the judge.
