Founded in 1991, the Bouboulina museum in Spetses, Greece, seeks donations for supporting the continued maintenance and operations of this historical site. Due the COVID-19 pandemic, the museum has been closed for much of the last year, resulting in financial hardships for the family-run museum. Please donate to help keep this important cultural site, and the amazing story of Bouboulina and her contributions to the Greek War of Independence, alive! Send $5 or $500, every bit helps.

I am excited to announce that I have commissioned a painting of Bouboulina, the heroine of the Greek Revolution, and subject of my dissertation and film, to be dedicated to the Bouboulina museum. The painting will feature Bouboulina and her 5th- generation grandson, Philip Demertzis-Bouboulis, who founded the museum in 1991.
Greek-Australian artist Efrossini Chaniotis will bring her to life- the first portrait of Bouboulina painted through the eyes of a woman! I won’t give too much away, but Effie is getting started and it’s going to be awesome! The big reveal will happen this summer at the Bouboulina museum, for the bicentennial celebration in Spétses, Greece.
