The Faces of the Hero exhibition features works reflecting on what a hero is and what heroism means by students from the Parsons School of Design and the Athens School of Fine Arts. The show is an element of Lincoln Center’s Restart Stages and the SNFCC’s celebration of the 200th anniversary of the Greek Revolution.
“Particularly vital at a time when travel is limited, the SNF-LC Agora Initiative endeavors to build bridges across the ocean, connecting us through art and public space,” said SNF Co-President Andreas Dracopoulos. “We hope the ‘Twin Agoras’ in Athens and New York City serve as a creative catalyst and valuable reminder of the importance of connection across people and cultures, and the many forms this can take. We look forward to the students’ interpretations of heroism, from the past to its new implication in the present.”
