A new website created by activist group “atenistas” provides information on all sculptures that can be found in public spaces in Athens.
The aim of the athenssculptures.com website is to give visitors information such as the history of the sculpture, the artist, the materials used and the location. It also provides maps on where to find particular sculptures.
At the moment the site has a list of over 320 sculptures, well-photographed and well-documented. There are also categories such as sculptures in metro train stations of Greece’s capital.
Atenistas started the project in the beginning of the year, with the first target being compiling a list of all sculptures in the municipality of Athens and then adding sculptures placed in other municipalities of the greater Athens area. The list will be constantly updated.
