If you're in NYC, you have to go see the current Onnasis foundation art exhibit on 51st next to St. Patrick's, From Byzantium to Modern Greece: Hellenic Art in Adversity, 1453–1830. I found the ecclesiastical stuff and the War of Independence stuff and some of the non-costume traveler's paintings all very interesting. The household goods type stuff looked good too, but didn't get to much of a chance to look at it. Wasn't as impressed by costumes and pics of costumes and am somewhat tired of maps (went to see that big map exhibit at the NYPL).
