“TALES OF ATHENS” by the Museum of Greek Children’s Art at Athens International Airport
Athens International Airport collaborates for the second time with the Museum of Greek Children’s Art with a new exhibition at the airport, “Tales of Athens". It is a unique artistic tale of the city through the eyes of 90 children aged 4 - 14 and artworks from the collections of the Museum of Greek Children’s Art.
Shapes and colors, techniques and materials, ancient or historical monuments and modern attractions, nearby countryside and secret seas, but also children's thoughts about their environment and the modern world, are illustrated in paintings and crafts and are on display through multimedia means and interactive games and graphic design by Andreas Georgiades. The artworks of the children make up a festive welcome and, at the same time, a glamorous and original scenery - panorama of Athens, inviting all travelers & visitors to discover it. A 20-minute video titled "Tales of Athens", a production – created by Diamandis Tassis especially for Athens International Airport – by the Museum of Greek Children’s Art, is also projected in the framework of the exhibition. The exhibition is open daily on a 24hour basis, at the exhibition area "Art and Culture", at the Arrivals Level of the Airport (All Users Area).
