Now Open, Hellenic Museum of Michigan Features Creative Artists

A year after COVID-19 hit the world and put many places in lockdowns, the Detroit-based Hellenic Museum of Michigan has reopened with a debut of the Inaugural Hellenic Art Exhibition.

The juried exhibit will showcase Greek-American artists who show “creativity of concept, excellence of design, and expertise of media,” said the site Hour Detroit, the event running to July 25 at its location at Wayne State University.

It will feature the work of almost 20 artists from places including Michigan, Greece, Florida, Arizona, and New York as well as Detroit photographer Donita Simpson, Ferndale mixed-media artist Espacia Fotiu, and Detroit fine artist Lexi Takis.

The Inaugural Hellenic Art Exhibition is part of a larger, year-long effort by the museum to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the Greek Revolution of 1821.

Evans Tasiopoulos, a Greek-American artist and founder of The MATI Group, which presents the annual Detroit Artist Ball, is the exhibit juror, his work having been featured too at Detroit's Museum of New Art.

Programs include a lecture on Archbishop Iakovos of America and music performances led by Kyrpos Markou, a professor and Director of the University Symphony Orchestra.
