Greek art exhibits are becoming increasingly popular in the U.S. and the rest of the world, as the U, in particular, has become more aware of the art form and is increasingly seeking to attract the publics attention.
One of the main reasons is that Greek art has a unique cultural appeal and is considered to be among the most important cultural and artistic expressions of the ancient world.
With this in mind, the U-S.
is in need of more than just museums, however.
With the help of the Greek National Museum of Athens, the Department of Anthropology at Georgia Tech is planning a large-scale Greek Art Exhibit at the Greek-American Art Museum in Atlanta.
This will feature works from over 400 Greek artists, ranging from the most prominent to the lesser known.
The exhibit will also showcase the most celebrated and most innovative works from the Greek Renaissance period.
“The Athens Cultural Center and the Greek American Art Museum are the premier cultural institutions in the country and we are excited to showcase their work to the world through this exhibit,” said Georgia Tech Associate Director for Greek and Asian Art Christopher Stokes.
“We are excited about the exhibition’s potential as it brings together a range of different art styles, representing a wide variety of cultural and social backgrounds and traditions.
The exhibition will be a unique experience for the Athens community, providing a chance for visitors to learn about a rich cultural history of Greece, and its people, culture and ideas.”
The exhibit is being coordinated by the Greek Cultural Center, the Greek Art Institute, and the Athens Public Museum.
It will open to the public on July 19, 2019.
This year, the Athens Art Museum and the University of Georgia are collaborating on a special exhibit of Greek art, featuring works by the artist Nastassios Houliadis, known for his portraits of contemporary Greek artists.
