Museum Wing Named for Behrakis Couple

George D. and Margo Behrakis

The George D. and Margo Behrakis Art of the Ancient World Wing was dedicated at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston on September 12. Behrakis, Chairman Emeritus of Leadership 100, and with his wife, Margo, long-time members of Leadership 100 and the hosts of the 25th Anniversary Celebration Conference last February in Puerto Rico, is among seven “guardians” of the Museum, who have contributed $25 million or more during their lifetime of giving. A noted philanthropist and innovative pioneer in the pharmaceutical industry, he sold Muro Pharmaceutical Inc. in 1998.

The dedication marked the first time the Museum of Fine Arts has named a multi-gallery wing in honor of a major donor since 1915. The unveiling was accompanied by the opening of a showcase gallery featuring some 30 pieces of the Museum’s collection of Greek and Roman sculpture.

“From the beginning of their long and deep relationship with the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, George and Margo Behrakis championed the art of the ancient world, believing passionately that art can unite a community and illuminate a shared cultural heritage,” said Malcolm Rogers, Graham Gund Director of the Museum of Fine Arts.

Among family and friends and Trustees and curators of the Museum in attendance was His Eminence Archbishop Demetrios of America and Paulette Poulos, Acting Director of the Archbishop Iakovos Leadership 100 Endowment Fund.
