On behalf of "Art Team Canada" I would like to offer our sincere thanks to Consul B. John Zavrel, Founder and Director of the Museum of European Art and the Sculpture Garden of Alexander. John is also Chancellor of the Order of Alexander the Great, which has its American headquarters at the Museum of European Art.

The museum provides the opportunity for experienced and emerging artists to show their work alongside the work of such masters as Salvador Dali, Pablo Picasso, Marc Chagall, Henry Moore, Andy Warhol, Arno Breker, Paul Belmondo, Alphonse Mucha and Aristide Maillol.

The Order of Alexander the Great for Art and Science is an idealistic association of men and women who have been inspired by the positive ideals of Alexander: love of art and science, search for knowledge and wisdom, freedom of religion and the promotion of what unifies mankind. These men and women include artists, scientists, writers, statesmen and inventors.
