Park West Gallery artist Dominic Pangborn is looking for your support in having his artwork chosen as the official design for the 2018 Winter Olympics.

A worldwide survey is underway to help select a design from one of 14 artists that will be used as the artistic branding on all games facilities and promotional items for the Winter Games, held in 2018 in Pyeongchang, Korea.

Pangborn, a native of Korea, and 13 other artists have been selected by the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art and the Korea Institute of Design Promotion to create artwork that will become the official “Games Look Design” of the Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games in 2018.

Both online and offline polls were created so the public can help decide which artist will be selected. A selection committee will evaluate the survey to help select the final design.

The online survey only takes about a minute to complete. Click here to take the survey, or visit the PyeongChang2018 official Facebook page. The survey runs until November 17, so be sure to vote for Pangborn’s entry (#11, “The Land of Morning Calm”).

Pangborn visited his home country on November 10 to take part in the Looks Motifs Exhibition and Survey opening ceremony at Dongdaemun Design Plaza in Seoul, where the designs are on display. In attendance at the ceremony was Minister of Culture, Sports and Tourism Kim Jongdeok.

“The Look Motifs Exhibition is a significant milestone to showcase the convergence of culture and sports,” says Kim. “With the selection of the Games Look Design, we expect that the Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games PyeongChang 2018 will promote Korea as a cultural power to the world.”

The Winter Games are scheduled for February 9-25, with 6,000 athletes expected to compete. Another 690 athletes will compete in the Paralymic Games, which will be held March 9-18.

Pangborn’s selection as one of the artists comes on the heels of his visit to Washington, D.C. in late October, where he presented artwork to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the White House Fellows.
