Olympic and Paralympic Medals

As part of the preparations for the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games, the Organizing Committee (VANOC) commissioned the design of medals to be awarded to athletes. The selected design is a beautiful and unique representation of First Nations culture.

Learn more about this project from the artist, Corinne Hunt, including background on the design of the medals. 

As Host Mountain Resort for the Games, the Resort Municipality of Whistler was a partner in staging the event. Through this experience, the municipality was given a full set of the medals, which are on display at the reception desk of Municipal Hall.
