A keenly anticipated exhibition commemorating the 200th anniversary of the start of the Greek War of Independence, The Greek Revolution through American Eyes, will open on March 30 with a celebratory event at the Maliotis Cultural Center of Hellenic College Holy Cross. His Eminence Archbishop Elpidophoros of America will inaugurate the exhibition during the opening ceremony, which will take place from 11 am to 12:30 pm and be live-streamed at www.greekrevolution.org.
This traveling and online exhibition is the fruit of a partnership between the Maliotis Center and the Dean C. and Zoe S. Pappas Interdisciplinary Center for Hellenic Studies of Stockton University. It explores the common themes binding Greece and the United States in Greece’s pursuit of liberty and also examines the formation of US identity in the nation’s first fifty years.
Drake Behrakis, Chair of the Hellenic College Holy Cross Advisory Committee for the Maliotis Cultural Center, will serve as master of ceremonies. Among the featured speakers will be Greece’s Consul General in Boston, Stratos Efthimiou, and Lisa Honaker, Dean of Stockton University’s School of Arts and Humanities. HCHC President George M. Cantonis and Dean Honaker will offer remarks, as will Dr. Timothy Patitsas, Dean of Hellenic College. Dr. Patitsas will then introduce Drs. Tom Papademetriou of Stockton and Nicholas Ganson of Hellenic College, co-directors of the exhibition.
