Preview, 'In Search of Home,' National Hellenic Museum

Opened to the public in a new building in December, this shiny new addition to Greektown and to the city's museum community made a wonderful opportunity out of the fact that its main exhibition, subtitled "The Greek Journey From Myth to Modern Day," is not yet ready as the museum continues to raise money. Instead, visitors get a behind-the-curtains look at the making of a museum display, with curators' notes, designers' visual inspirations and samples of the information to be presented when the exhibit is done. The result proves fascinating, both about the stated subject matter and about the broader subject of putting artifacts and knowledge before the public. The preview is scheduled to be up until the main exhibit opens, scheduled for next summer.
