What I can see

One of the themed gardens of the New Seafront, the Sculpture Garden, is paved with white gravel, has a fountain and houses modern and contemporary sculptures. One of them is “Horizons” (2016) by Martha Panagiotopoulou, which sets the viewing boundaries between sculpture and city, depending on the standpoint. It is made of corten (mainly steel and copper), a corrosion-resistant material. Other sculptures are a)”Three Circles” (1978) by Giorgos Zongolopoulos, which is water-powered, located inside the fountain and made of stainless steel, b)”Invitation” (2016) by Mark Hatzipateras, c) the impressive “Thessaloniki’s horizon” (2022) by Giorgos Tsaras, which consists of two asymmetrically placed steel squares and 7 copper sheets that penetrate them, and d) “Untitled” (1969) by Michalis Katzourakis, a Y-shaped metal yellow sculpture with plasticity and perspective.

What I can't see

In addition to the wear caused by the weather conditions and the sea, these sculptures often fall victim to vandalism, the most common form of which is tagging. For these reasons, protection and frequent preservation are required.
