happened upon the OCC when passing by on my way to a meeting; a new discovery! definitely worth a visit and repeats - the current exhibition "Emotions...." includes material from some of the most important collections on the planet, carefully curated and professionally presented. Well done, technical and curatorial staff! the front desk staffed by a lovely, warm and welcoming... 更多
We visited the Onassis Cultural Center to see the World of Emotions in Ancient Greece and were blown away by both the Center itself and the exhibit. We found the entrance hall amazing with 50 foot high ceilings, reproductions of the Elgin Marbles on the wall, and many interesting details, including some amazing modern art. The beautiful chairs were a... 更多
This traveling exhibit presents a unique collection of Ancient Greek art works from 700 BC to 200 AD. Various art forms such as pottery paintings, classic statues, wall frescos and funerary pieces express emotions of joy, happiness, triumph, sadness, grieving, seduction, anger, and jealousy to name a few. It appears that artists of that period had established various formats to... 更多
The Emotions Exhibition using Greek statues, ceramics and metal is terrific. It shows the range of emotions present in Greek art. It helps you understand the art in a new a different way. I highly recommend it. Be sure to check the hours before you go. They are a bit irregular.
Very charming free museum. Ancient Greek artifacts statues, vases, and implements. Nice depictions of Ancient Greek life. Great collection of rare objects. Off the beaten trail. Loved it.

The quality of the artifacts is outstanding, the facilities and exhibit space are spacious and comfortable, the written explanation clear and informative. It is a small museum and an hour and a half is plenty of time... 更多

I heard about this exhibit in the New Yorker so I made sure to check in out on my recent trip to NYC. This exhibit from 700BC to 200AD all pertaining to Emotions. The artifacts have been curated from museums around the world. And best of all...the exhibit is free of charge. What a find!
We watch closely to see what exhibits this small museum has in place. It has Byzantine art, Greek art, even modern stuff. The people who curate are brilliant. The show we just saw on newer excavations was eye opening. It can be seen in an hour or so, so is OK for lunch or a nice break from the Midtown... 更多
