For four years,Wayne State University and a group of leaders from theHellenic community studied the usage of vacant historic buildings in the Cultural Center of Detroit. Focus groups were held with students from the University to consider utilizing the space as a Hellenic Museum. Prior to this work, there was no formalized setting in one venue for the presentation of Hellenic Culture and its rich heritage of music, art, literature, history, philosophy and language. It was determined that the lack of programs, exhibits, and information was a void that could be filled so that current and future generations would have access toHellenic culture. Final agreement was reached and a group of individuals led by one major benefactor provided the funds to purchase the historic building at 67 E. Kirby, the former Children’s Museum of Detroit. The dream became a reality in November, 2009.
Share the richness of Hellenic heritage and conserve the contributions of Hellenic culture in shaping our world today and in the future.
