During your Visit

The Parthenon Marble Casts Collection

On display in the Atrium of the Olympic Tower is The Parthenon Marbles Cast Collection of the City College of New York. The collection was acquired in 1852 and was one of the first sets of Parthenon marbles casts to come to the United States. Although not complete, the casts served an important educational function in the C.C.N.Y. art department's studio and art history classes for more than one hundred years. In 1992 they were placed in storage, awaiting necessary restoration.

Contemporary Art in the Atrium

Exhibitions of contemporary art, including photography and architecture, take place in the Olympic Tower Atrium, and also include specially commissioned installations by international artists inspired by Hellenic culture.
