This motto has accompanied me throughout my whole life as a gallery owner and art consultant. For the art collection of the MET Hotel in Thessaloniki, however, it was an ideology and not just a motto.

Always on the lookout for both well-known and unknown artists, I consulted over many years the owners of the MET Hotel to create an unique and breathtaking art collection. Highly committed to the fostering of art the owners supported large-scale art projects that are open to the public. For the first time worldwide, an exhibition concept that follows museum standards was developed and realised in the rooms and spaces of a hotel. The Owners of the hotel want to offer an extraordinary experience to the guests of the MET Hotel: to live in close contact with works of art that usually can only be viewed in museums or private art collections.
