APPLE COMPUTER SPONSORS OLYMPICS DESIGN EXHIBITION

 APPLE COMPUTER SPONSORS OLYMPICS DESIGN EXHIBITION
 PARIS, July 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Apple Computer Europe today announced its sponsorship of a significant design exhibition organized by COOB '92 and the Olimpiada Cultural, the entity responsible for Barcelona's programme of cultural activities surrounding the Olympic Games of 1992.
 The exhibition, called "El Disseny Olimpic" (Catalan for 'Olympic Design') will run from July 15 - Aug. 9, 1992. Housed in the elegant Maritime Museum near the Olympic Village, the show features an extensive collection of many different design creations generated for the Olympic events. The exhibit represents a unique opportunity to experience the imagination and talent shown by Spanish and international designers, photographers and other artists who participated in the various projects related to the Olympic Games.
 Apple Computer is particularly interested in this collection, as a number of the works on exhibit were produced by artists who use Apple Macintosh personal computers for their designs. A notable example is the celebrated Spanish designer, Mariscal, creator of "Cobi", the mascot of the Barcelona Olympics, and an avid user of the Apple Macintosh. Among the other innovative works in the collection are all the different logos created from the start of the Barcelona Games, posters by well-known artists and photographers, publications, traffic signs, furniture, uniforms, stamps, and numerous other objects and images that relate to the games.
 "By sponsoring this exhibition, Apple wishes to pay special tribute to the tremendous creativity of the international design community. Designers and artists from around the world have shown tremendous enthusiasm for our products in their creative endeavors, and this is our way of saluting their talent," said Soren Olsson, president of Apple Europe.
 The exhibit will also feature a reproduction of Mariscal's design studio, complete with Apple Macintosh computers. Visitors will be able to create their own personal passport to the exhibition through an interactive programme running on Apple Macintosh computers, and access a multimedia presentation that traces the history of the Olympic Games and the city of Barcelona.
 In addition to this cultural connection to the Olympic events, Apple Computer Espana is the official supplier of Office Automation for the Olympic Games of Barcelona '92.
