“ANAMNISEIS ” in Chicago

The Hellenic Museum and Cultural Center in Chicago inaugurated its newest exhibition, ANAMNISEIS: Highlights of the Permanent Collection
The exhibit which opened on February 5, 2009 in the Hellenic Museum's main gallery translates to memories. The Hellenic Museum's mission strives to document the Hellenic experience from antiquity to the present.
The Hellenic Museum and Cultural Center collection spans thousands of years and over 7,000 objects.  "Highlights" will showcase beautiful artifacts from our permanent collection.  They will include: the HMCC's first catalogued item, a simple cedar trunk; textiles; assorted photographs and documents; special collection books from the Museum's library that contains over 10,000 books and materials; Greek art printing from our archives; and to be on display for the first time, Karaghiozis (Greek puppets).  As we prepare to go forward with the building of a new museum to house even more artifacts of our Greek culture, we now look back at some of our favorite memories.
The exhibition will be on display until April 26, 2009 and will be guest curated by Terri Sinnott, who has worked most recently at the Motorola Museum of Electronics, in addition the Museum of Science and Industry, the Henry Ford Museum and the Smithsonian Institution.
