Curated by Dimitrios Pandermalis, president of the Acropolis Museum and director of the excavations at Dion since 1973, Gods and Mortals at Olympus: Ancient Dion, City of Zeus offers public access to Dion’s daily, cultural, and religious life. These works, never before seen in the US, are a selection from the thousands of artifacts that have been unearthed at the site in the course of forty years of systematic and scientific archaeological excavation. Images and videos of the city’s ruins and natural landscapes will immerse the visitor in the natural backdrop of the artifacts, and bring the ancient city of Dion to life. The exhibition is accompanied by public programs for all ages and interests.
