Milton Glaser and Sarajevo

Milton Glaser created posters for Sarajevo on two occasions. The first was in 1983. Then the International Olympic Committee asked him to create a poster for the promotion of the XIV Winter Olympic Games in Sarajevo. He offered two designs. One with an antique pole as the motif and another with the motif of a skier. Both were also produced as prints and are held today in the collection of the International Olympic Committee as well as the collection of the Museum of the XIV Winter Olympic Games in Sarajevo (Collection of the Olympic Committee of Bosnia and Herzegovina).

This collection includes works by 18 internationally recognized artists: David Hockney, Mimmo Paladino, Andy Warhol, Michelangelo Pistoletto, Victor Vasarely, James Rosenquist, Henry Moore, Piero Dorazio, Hundertwasser, Yozo Hamaguchi, Gottfried Helnwein, Howard Hodgin, Cy Twombly, Michel Folon, Kyu-Baik Hwang, Jiri Kolar, Giuseppe Santomaso and Emilio Greco.
The second was in 2014. Then, together with Mirko Ilic, he made a poster for the anniversary of Sarajevo 100 – One Hundred Years Since the 1914 Sarajevo Assassination.
