Directions to B. & M. Theocharakis Foundation
The B & M Theocharakis Foundation for the Fine Arts and Music was founded as a non-profit-making foundation for the public good in 2004 and ratified by Presidential Decree.
Basil and Marina Theocharakis establish the B. & M. Theocharakis Foundation for fine arts and music in the heart of Athens political and cultural centre. With over 470sqm of open plan exhibition space and a 175 seat amphitheatre at their disposal, the foundation set out to make international and local arts and music accessible to the public. As a result they offer a wide ranging programme of events including exhibitions, recitals, seminars, lectures and workshops.
The foundation also houses an art shop, aimed to sell and promote start up artists, selling sculptures and paintings at affordable prices. It is also possible to purchase books, prints and jewellery, inspired by their collections which act as excellent gift ideas.
The Cafe Merlin up on the first floor has a friendly atmosphere and attracts not only visitors to the foundation, but those spending the day in the city's shops too. With a great view of the bustling streets and the National Garden it serves up some top notch Mediterranean dishes.
