Are you enjoying watching the summer Olympics? The Newseum, (Washington DC's museum of News) in partnership with the global news agency Agence France-Presse, is displaying daily photos of the 2012 Olympic Games on two digital screens on the Newseum's Concourse Level as well as on the 40-by-22-foot high-definition media screen in the Great Hall of News. This is a great way to see some of the highlights of the events. Seventy photographers from AFP are covering 10,000 of the world's top athletes as they compete for medals in more than 300 events, from archery to wrestling. The images will be on display through Aug. 19, 2012.
