“Our goal is to create a Greek museum,” explained President Magdalen Mavroudis. “We want Greek art and culture transmitted to the next generation. We are ready to help with every aspect of a Greek museum in New York. We thank the Federation of Greek Societies and members of the Greek Artists guild for working hard to prepare this Art show.”
