MuseumMasters.gr collection at The Field Museum of Chicago!

 

“Your product really elevates the assortment in the store - I think everything looks really striking, all blue, white and gold.”  said Mr. Mark Kanazawa, the Head the Shop of The Field Museum of Chicago.

The above comment refers to the copies that we sent as MuseumMasters.gr (the online shop of the PHILIPPAKIS ART museum workshops based in Athens) and was made for the great exhibition "The Greeks: Agamemnon to Alexander the Great'', which is organized by the Greek Ministry of Culture and the Consortium of North American Museums with official representative the Canadian Museum of History in Ottawa.

This is the most representative "panorama" of Greek culture that has ever traveled outside Greek borders and includes 543 masterpieces of ancient Greek sculpture, painting and art of jewelery, coming from all the Αrchaeological Μuseums of Greece.

The exhibition was inaugurated on December 12 at the Point a Calliere Museum, at the Montreal Archaeology and History Complex in Montreal, and remained there until April 26, 2015. It was then moved to the Ottawa Museum of History in Canada from June 5, 2015 to October 12, 2015.

Νow, is located at The Field Museum in Chicago, where it was inaugurated on November 24, 2015 and will remain there until April 10, 2016. The last visiting point is the National Geographic Museum in Washington from 26 May 2016 to 9 October 2016.

"It is the largest Greek exhibition that is ever shown in North America," stressed Canada's Ambassador in Athens, Robert Peck, noting that "many of the archaeological finds have never been exhibited outside of Greek boarders."

We are proud of the honor made by The Field Museum, to chose our own handmade works (museum copies) for the museum's shop for this great exhibition. We have created an constructive cooperation and our goal is to continue and expand our partnerships with other museums in the world. Through the quality and aesthetics of our collection, our aim is to promote Greece, the Art and Culture and give to the people the opportunity to "Take a piece of Greece with you" (which is our slogan!)
