Our “grassroots” initiative to raise funds for the Fulbright Scholarship Program
The “Art Supports Education–Fulbright Alumni Art Series” is an initiative that began in 2009. In recognition of the fundamental role of education, Fulbright artist alumni graciously donate their works in support of the Fulbright Scholarship Program.
The “Art Supports Education – Fulbright Alumni Art Series” program, was implemented with the support of the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the US Department of State, and the US Embassy in Athens. The first series of works was presented in January 2011 in Athens, at the Benaki Museum’s Pireos Street Annex and December 2011 in Thessaloniki, at the Excelsior Hotel. The second series was presented March 2016 at Salon de Bricolage in Athens.
The goal of the “Art Supports Education – Fulbright Alumni Art Series” program is to demonstrate that art supports education, just as education supports art. Thus, Fulbright artists reciprocate the opportunity they were given, by contributing with their works to support the Scholarship Program. The Foundation invites you to support the Fulbright Scholarship Program by acquiring a work of art from the Fulbright Alumni Art Series. All proceeds will benefit the Fulbright Scholarship Program.
In recognition of the fundamental role of education, Fulbright alumni artists donate their works in support of the Fulbright Scholarship Program. We look forward to include as many alumni artists as possible, to date, participating Fulbright alumni artists include: Erieta Attali, Dora Economou, Efi Chalikopoulou, Fotis Flevotomos, Elias Kafouros, Diane Katsiaficas, Zoe Keramea, Apostolos Kilessopoulos, Sia Kyriakakos, Ioannis Michalou(di)s, Eleni Mylonas, Dimitris Papaioannou + Marilena Stafylidou, Lambros Papanikolatos, Vangelis Pliarides, Loukia Richards, Fotis Sagonas, Antonis Theodoridis, Giorgios Tzinoudis, Costas Varotsos, Nikolas Ventourakis, Adonis Volanakis , Kristina Williamson, Zafos Xagoraris, Yiorgis Yerolymbos, Sotos Zachariadis, Theodoros Zafeiropoulos.
