Visual Arts Museum of Heraklion

The Visual Arts Museum of Heraklion is a non-profit civil law partnership founded in May 2000 by K. Shizakis. Its aim is to embrace all citizens and to become a meeting point and a point of interaction for artists, art enthusiasts and friends. It is a place which promotes solidarity, cooperation, culture, art, training and entertainment. To this end, the following activities have been planned: training and educational seminars and lectures on artistic creation, conferences, concerts, seminars, publications etc.

The Museum will welcome visual arts exhibitions, cultural exchanges between associations and cooperation with other private or public museums of Greece and abroad. The Museum was inaugurated with the exhibition of works by Cretan artists (K. Shizakis collection) which introduced the main part of the Museum’s possessions to the public.
