As I was strolling down East 51st Street in Manhattan yesterday, I passed by Olympic Tower, which has an atrium open to the public. Something caught my eye.
Yes, it was a monster staring at me, or perhaps it was many! In fact, there was an atrium filled with creatures of Greek mythology all trying to catch my attention- Medusa, Scylla and Charybdis were all there and they were all reaching out to me.
All of those scary lovable monsters! All of those EYES! I was immediately drawn in through the revolving door into the world of Beetroot, an award-winning design group from Thessaloniki, Greece, which had created these creatures.
The exhibition is entitled Greek Monsters, and is sponsored by the Onassis Foundation (USA). It runs through July 2014 (the exact last date of the exhibition is not listed). It is open seven days per week, from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. and admission is free.
I’m happy to share the photos of took today. Just don’t stare too long, or else…..
