The National Hellenic Museum (NHM) is launching a new exhibition titled “The Greek Monsters” on September 26, 2014.

Designed by Greek-based artists, Beetroot, the oversized, colorful creatures are engaging for children and adults alike and tell classic mythological tales in a modern way.

The “post-black-figured” visual style of The Greek Monsters exhibition is based upon the original illustrations by Beetroot for a book titled “The Misunderstood Monsters of Greek Mythology.”

The exhibition brings the book to life through sculpture, paintings, audiovisual artwork, and interactive displays. The Greek Monsters are presented as contemporary symbols and re-establish Greek mythology’s central role in western storytelling.
