Ένα Άγαλμα είναι, μία έμπνευση, ένα δημιούργημα, ένα βιβλίο, μια εικόνα,
ένα έργο τέχνης, ένα μνημείο, περνάει πολλαπλά μηνύματα, μια υπενθύμιση
που μας θυμίζει συνέχεια την Ιστορία που είναι η οντότητα και η ταυτότητά μας.
 
 
A Statue is an ispiration, a creation, a book, an image, an artwork, a monument,
passes many messages, a reminder of our history and our identity.

Να δημιουργείς και δημιουργώντας να δημιουργείσαι
και να μην είσαι τίποτε άλλο από την δημιουργία σου.

Dear Mr. Buckley                                              Dear Ms Krewson

 

The goal of our Foundation is to promote Hellenism in America by honoring Greek Americans  which leaves behind their legacy.  Next on the list of the foundation is to place a bronze statue of Constantino Brumidi  (1805-1880),  the Greek - Italian – American Artist of the Capitol,  in the City of Annapolis  area preferable in a visible central location to make it a tourist attraction for the city. His Greek father Stavros Broumidis gave him the Inspiration and Aspiration, his Italian mother Anna Bianchini gave him the talent of Art, and the United States of America gave him the opportunity to become the Michael Angelo of the Capitol.

 

Our decision to choose Annapolis to place the Statue of Constantino Brumidi, is close to Washington DC and has a strong population of Greek and Italian Communities.

 

Foundation of Hellenism of America is respectfully requesting to receive an official decision to place a bronze statue of Constantino Brumidi with the financial support of Greek  American Organizations. Also, we would like to start the structure of the statue and placement of a bronze commemorative plaque on the base. The statue height is 6 feet 2 inches and the base height 6 feet.

 
Some of Foundation’s projects are:
