Post-Byzantine: The Greek Renaissance, Exhibit on Display in New York

The Onassis Cultural Center on Fifth Avenue in New York is the site of a wonderful small display of 15th-18th century Greek treasures from the Byzantine & Christian Museum in Athens. The Byzantine Empire ended with the fall of Constantinople in 1483, but its cultural history continued with its own renaissance. In a small exhibit at the Onassis Center in New York, visitors are treated to post-Byzantine treasures including frescoes, early books and manuscripts, icons, liturical robes and metalworks.

The exhibit opened in November and runs through February 28, 2003. Hours are Monday-Saturday, 10:00-6:00. There is no charge.
