"The Flair" - Sculpture by Richard MacDonald
The most dramatic piece of artwork at the Hall of Fame is this half-life sized bronze statue. It is a replica of the 21-foot high bronze that was unveiled in Atlanta in conjunction with the Centennial Olympic Games in 1996. A smaller replica, one of 250 castings, is also on display at the Hall and is available for purchase. Both bronzes are numbered and signed by the artist.
