Description : For the first time in its history, the City College's restored Parthenon Marbles Cast Collection is on view in the atrium of Olympic Tower, on a long-term loan to the Alexander S. Onassis Public Benefit Foundation (USA). The collection was acquired by the City College in 1852 from the British Museum in London and was one of the first sets of Parthenon marbles casts to come to the United States. The Alexander S. Onassis Public Benefit Foundation (USA) financed the restoration of the casts to give the American audience an unprecedented opportunity to enjoy these sculptural marvels of the Parthenon, the most important monument of classical Greece. The casts are direct copies made from molds of the original marble sculptural decoration of the Parthenon, the supreme monument of Greek antiquity and one of the greatest symbols of Western civilization.
