On the occasion of the celebration of the Greek Revolution’s bicentennial, the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, one of the world’s top museums, featuring the exceptional George D. and Margo Behrakis Wing for Art of the Ancient World, joined in the effort to light buildings and bridges around the world with the blue of the Greek flag.
The Greek Independence Day is celebrated annually on March 25th. On the nights of the 24th and the 25th, the Museum will light the Huntington Entrance blue and install two Greek Flags at the Entrance.
We are grateful to George Behrakis for inspiring this action and Matthew Teitelbaum, the MFA Director, for making it happen.
