About the Onassis Cultural Center
The Onassis Cultural Center NY of the Onassis Foundation (USA) presents a wide
range of programs that explore all phases of Hellenic civilization—ancient, Byzantine,
and modern. The OCC NY collaborates with American and Greek institutions as it
showcases cultural and artistic activities, such as art and archaeological exhibitions
accompanied by publications and educational programs; concerts, lectures, and
panel discussions; public dialogues; literary evenings; and theatrical performances.
The OCC NY attracts visitors from around the United States to its free events and
The Onassis Cultural Center NY is currently under renovation in order to significantly
upgrade and expand the galleries of the Center and give the public space of the
Olympic Tower Atrium an enhanced new look. Programs and events of the OCC NY
continue during this time at venues around NYC, and visitors may still enjoy longterm
installations of contemporary art in the Atrium of Olympic Tower.
