Mr. Kapralos notes in the exhibition documentation: "Perseverance is the driving force of self-realization and evolution. perseverance compels us to serve our vision and continue with our values, despite social toxicity and in opposition to the misery of everyday life. perseverance differs from patience - which implies a suspensive notion of tolerance - as it is characterized by unwavering commitment to long-term goals and is associated with unyielding determination to progress toward achieving a goal, even if it requires a lot of time and effort. perseverance differs from persistence, as perseverance may be characterized by an inability to adapt to new information or conditions, while perseverance implies a steadfast commitment to achieving long-term goals. perseverance is a driving force to become the change we want to see; it keeps us moving, constantly seeking improvement."


Opening Hours/Days: Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday 11:00 - 18:00, Thursday 12:00 - 19:00, Saturday 11:00 - 15:00. Closed on Monday and Sunday. Free Admission.
