The “Cultural City with a bike”, as we named the action, was an outdoor exhibition of art of many and different styles having bicycle as a main constructional material.

A team of important and recognisable artists as the gentlemen and ladies: Kostas Varnas, Vangelis Zafeiroulis,

Apostolis Makris,Paraskevas Makris Lazarus Marabas, Maria Panagiotou, father Serafeim-Dimitris Rousopoylos, Fasoyli Maro and Alexandros Laios, Christina Adamopoulou, Aristotle Bikentiou, Giorgos Mayridis, Panos Moraitis, Tassos Menemenoglou and Vasilis Prappas was called to create a number of art of big size, using as raw material for the manufacture parts of old bicycles.

The artists corresponded in their own separate way and thus resulted to 14 figurative artworks, which which had as a main subject the bicycle, as far as people and city are concerned. The works were exposed to the public in a Square near the train station in the Municipality of Maroussi in March 2008.

The visitors of the exhibition had the opportunity to admire and came in contact with the artworks. People touched the artworks and took photos of them.
