Interview Stephanie Vlahakis, Executive Director The National Hellenic Museum Daily Frappe sat down with Stephanie Vlahakis, Executive Director of the National Hellenic Museum, to talk about the history of the Museum, current happenings and the muchanticipated future home of this important cultural institution. Daily Frappe Tell us about the Museum's origin? Stefanie Vlahakis In 1983, a group of friends who wanted to preserve the history of Greek immigration to the United States founded the Hellenic Museum and Cultural Center in Chicago. They held meetings in various places, until May 8, 1992, when the Hellenic Museum and Cultural Center first opened to the public at 400 N. Franklin Street. A couple of moves later, in July 2004, the Museum finally settled at its current location on the fourth floor of the Greek Islands building, in the heart of Chicago's Greektown. DF Who were the group of friends who founded the museum? SV Some of the very first people who founded the Museum include Andrew Kopan, Leon Marinakos, James Mezilson, Michael Svourakis, Andrew Athens, Frank S. Kamberos and Evan Kakis, to name a few. DF Give us some major milestones of the National Hellenic Museum (NHM) in the past few years that got us to the point we are today. SV 2001: Dr. Mary Dochios Kamberos was the first million-dollar donor and made it possible for the Museum to get the Tax Improvement Fund (TIF) from the City of Chicago. 2001: Museum receives a TIF from the City of Chicago in the amount of $3.5 million. 2004: Museum moves to its current loft space at 801 W. Adams, 4th floor, in the Greek Islands Building. INTERVIEW | 9
2005 – 2008: Four additional million-dollar donors contribute to the capital campaign. 2006: Calamos Investments founder, John P. Calamos Sr., donates $2 million to the capital campaign. 2009 – Architect Demetrios Stavrianos’s final design for the new Museum is approved. February, 2010: New Museum construction starts. Through the steady, hard work of our team, volunteers and Board, the Museum has: · Over 7,000 items in its collection · Over 10,000 books, periodicals, and papers in its library · Over 4,000 schoolchildren visiting the Musuem each year DF What are some of the exhibits that the NHM has presented to the public in the past few years? SV Neolaia/Pathos: new.youth.passion., which showcased 13 young contemporary Greek American artists aged 20–40 from throughout the United States. That exhibit was a phenomenal success. We’ve also shown the modern artwork of Diane Thodos. We’ve exhibited Sacred Art, which showcased icons, manuscripts and sacred objects of the Greek Orthodox tradition. Anamniseis: Highlights of the Permanent Collection displayed some of the Museum’s collection. We try to present a variety of subjects. Some of our exhibits are more contemporary while others are historical and/or cultural. DF The Oral History Project has been a cornerstone of the NHM for several years. Tell us a little about this national project. SV The National Hellenic Museum inaugurated its Oral History Program in 2003 to capture the stories and history of the Greek experience in the United States. The program was expanded in 2007, and thanks to a generous grant from Frank S. Kamberos, a state-of-the-art Oral History Center was created. Designed by architectural firm, Sand Box, the module was christened “Homer,” after the great ancient Greek storyteller who wrote the 10 | INTERVIEW
Iliad and the Odyssey. Homer’s futuristic design features a digital recording and playback display with a collection of interactive picture frames. To date, the Museum has over 180 oral histories in its archives. Recently, the Museum has teamed up with the National Hellenic Society on the “Homer Project,” an initiative to collect the stories of Greek Americans throughout the United States. So far, the partnership has traveled to West Palm Beach, Tarpon Springs, Washington DC to collect oral histories, with plans to visit Salt Lake City, New York, Atlanta and other cities. If you're interested in sharing your story, please contact us the National Hellenic Museum at 312 655 1234 and ask to speak with Vivian Haritos or Tom Tzouras. We'd love to add your unique story to our special collection! DF The institution recently went through a rebranding and name change from the Hellenic Museum and Cultural Center to the National Hellenic Museum. What was the reasoning behind the change? SV We wanted the Museum to reflect a national presence, and to re-energize our audience. Our new mission is connecting generations through Greek history, culture, and art. The Museum is here to share the Greek story - a story that laid the foundation for Western civilization, contributed to the building of America and continues to innovate today. DF Can you elaborate a little more about the rebranding? SV Our society is now global and we wanted to reflect the idea of unity and continuity in time and space. One of the elements we've used deliberately in our logo is the Greek key. The key (or meander) itself represents unity and infinity, which were powerful ideas for the ancient Greeks and ideas we want to reference today in the Museum. Greek history and culture is the foundation of western civilization – much of what we know today can be traced back directly to Greek literature, philosophy, architecture and so on. This is a big, exciting concept for us to explore. This connection from the past to the present and to the future has a lot to offer. So with the rebranding, we strive to embrace our rich past that INTERVIEW | 11
includes the soul of the Greek American immigrant story, and as we look to the future, bring attention to the many and continuing contributions of Greek Americans and Greeks to our global society today. DF There is much anticipation for the ground breaking to begin on the permanent home of the National Hellenic Museum. Is there a time frame in which we can expect to see ground breaking to begin?
Did you know? · 90% of the people that visit our Museum are not Greek · Our children's programs reach out to more than 4,000 school-aged children every year · We have over 7,000 artifacts in our collection department and our exhibits are constantly changing throughout the year · Our library has over 10,000 books and periodicals that are available to visitors as well as scholars and researchers · We have recorded Oral Histories from all over the United States —each one offering moving accounts and compelling stories of the Greek immigrant experience in this country includes the soul of the Greek American immigrant story, and as we look to the future, bring attention to the many and continuing contributions of Greek Americans and Greeks to our global society today.
SV Yes. Twenty-four caissons, which are the underground supports that hold the steel frame for the museum, have been drilled 85 feet into the ground and filled. The foundation will be poured later this spring, and construction is projected to be completed in late 2011. The building campaign has been dubbed, The Newest Thing in Ancient History, as this will be the only major museum dedicated to Greek history and culture in the United States. The museum will be complete in 2011. DF What are some ways that individuals can get involved with the National Hellenic Museum? 12 | INTERVIEW
SV The best way you can get involved is by becoming a member of the Museum. This one simple thing everyone can do will help more than you can imagine because this is how the Museum is going to be builtâ€”by our supporters. Also, please visit us! Come see what we're doing. Come to our events and programs - there's something for everyone! You can also get involved by volunteering or serving on any on of our committees. Stay current with what we have going on at the Museum by becoming a fan on Facebook. Also, visit our website at www.nationalhellenicmuseum.org. We also blog about our events and exhibits on the website. DF Can I volunteer my time? SV Yes! We can always use volunteers! Please contact Kathy Smith at 312 655 1234 ext 28 to find out how you can get involved. DF As a member of the NHM what are some of the benefits/perks one can expect? SV As a member, you get free admission to exhibits, discounts to programs and 10% off in the museum store. The higher level memberships offer benefits like gift cards, complimentary passes and special invitations. At the highest level, you have the unique opportunity to host one private event at the Museum. The details are listed on our website. DF Thanks Stephanie! Best wishes for continued success.
