The Onassis Cultural Center New York explores Greek culture from antiquity to today, through a diverse program of exhibitions, events, and online engagement for audiences of all ages and interests. All programs and exhibitions—from scholarly to those designed for families, novices, and experts—are presented free of charge to make the experience accessible to all.
An affiliate of the parent Foundation in Greece, the Onassis Foundation USA, in collaboration with museums, curators, and scholars from around the world, produces critically acclaimed art exhibitions, often featuring artworks and objects never before shown in the United States. Exhibitions range from Ancient Greek and Roman Art to Byzantine Art to Modern and Contemporary Art.
With a new emphasis on the present, the Onassis Cultural Center New York presents the work of established, emerging, and newly discovered artists from Greece and around the world. The Art Wall offers a prominent place to display specially commissioned works by contemporary artists in the Olympic Tower Atrium.
For a survey of Greek art, Greek Art and Archaeology: A New History, c. 2500-c. 150 BCE combines a clear chronological narrative with a fresh and up-to-date account of Greek art and archaeology. The book presents a historical interpretation of Greek art and archaeology within a chronological framework, and balances different methodologies to present a well-rounded picture.
