Boston U Philhellenes to Honor Lalaounis

October 27, 2018

BOSTON, MA – The Boston University Philhellenes (BUPh) will host a special event on November 8 with Ioanna Lalaouni, Director of the Ilias Lalaounis Jewelry Museum (ILJM).
BUPh Director Kelly Polychroniou told The National Herald that the event is “warmly supported by the Consulate General of Greece in Boston.” Lalaouni, in her lecture titled “A Tribute to Ilias Lalaounis: Hellenic Beauty – Ancient and Modern,” will discuss her father’s career, the ILJM’s mission, and the origins of “this extraordinary jewelry.”
Prof. Polychroniou said that “Ms. Lalaouni is an alumna of Boston University, holding an MA degree in Art History from there. She has worked closely with BUPh, hosting the group for a special tour of the ILJM at the foot of the Acropolis in Athens. The Museum features a spectacular collection of Lalaounis pieces from the designer’s storied career, as well as demonstrations of the techniques recreated or invented by Lalaounis (which transform historic techniques, patterns and motifs into pieces art, and are renowned throughout the world)
to produce his masterpieces inspired by ancient jewelry.”

The November 8 event, she noted, will feature a raffle of two pieces of jewelry from ILJM, and that proceeds would support BUPh, “which promotes the study of Greek language and culture through events, scholarships, and an annual Summer Study in Greece for college students.”
ILJM, which was Lalaounis’ original workshop, was the first museum in Greece accessible to individuals with special needs, for which it offers programs, and also offers courses and internships for jewelry students.
More information about the November 8 event is available by contacting Director Polychroniou at [email protected].
