Faces of the Hero: From New York to Athens 

Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts

We’re excited to announce the inaugural collaboration of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation-Lincoln Center Agora Initiative (SNF-LC). This free, transatlantic visual arts exhibition, Faces of the Hero, will be presented in both New York City and Athens this summer as part of an innovative initiative to reimagine and reactivate public spaces and the arts for a new era through international “Twin Agoras.“ Works by students from the Parsons School of Design and Athens School of Fine Arts that examine the meaning of “hero“ and “heroism“ through time will be displayed in outdoor public spaces on both campuses beginning in July. In New York, the exhibition will be part of Restart Stages at Lincoln Center, an outdoor performing arts hub coming to Lincoln Center’s campus this spring and summer. In Athens, the exhibition will be part of a celebration marking the 200-year anniversary of the Greek Revolution that includes plays, concerts, and educational programs on the SNFCC campus.

Faces of the Hero is made possible by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF), as part of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation–Lincoln Center Agora Initiative.
