The United States Sports Academy, which is home of the American Sport Art Museum and Archives (ASAMA), recently donated a Wyland lithograph entitled, “Chinese Brush Strokes” to the Daphne Public Library.
“We feel honored that the United States Sports Academy would think of the library to receive such a gift,” said Library Director Tonya Young. “I’m certain that the citizens of Daphne will enjoy seeing the dolphins!”
The Chinese characters on the piece depict “Higher, Faster, Stronger,” which represents the Olympic Motto. This signed and numbered lithograph featuring three dolphins was done by Wyland for the 2008 Beijing Olympics.
