The Vorres Museum is the vision of Ian Vorres. The museum, dedicated to contemporary Greek and folk art, is, by a 1983 presidential decree, a non for profit foundation and a legal entity of private law. Its aim is to promote and disseminate Greek civilization through the creation of infrastructures and permanent collections, the presentation of exhibitions, the implementation of educational programs, the design of publications, as well as the organization of events, happenings, speeches, etc.
The Vorres Museum is located in Paiania, covering about 3 acres. It is housed in a complex of buildings totalling 4,500 square meters, surrounded by extensive courtyards and gardens. It is supervised by a ten-member Board of Trustees, which decides on the operation, strategic planning, management and allocation of its funds and is responsible for fulfilling the Foundation's aims.
