One of the leading artists of our country is Giorgos Xenoulis. Born in Athens in 1944, he left at a young age for Africa to return in 1990. In the "black continent" he lived and worked for 22 years, while he drew his first inspiration for sculpture from the art of the natives of Central Africa.
An original floating exhibition from the Collections of the National Historical Museum was transported during the summer until September by the sailing educational vessel "Mania" of the Naval High School of the Maria Tsakos Foundation. The vessel made stops in many ports of insular Greece, including the islands of Argosaronicos, Spetses, Hydra, Poros and Aegina.
EPANACYCTACI '21, as the floating exhibition of the relics of 1821 was called, had been postponed twice due to the coronavirus pandemic. In the end, however, it was held on the occasion of the 200th anniversary of the 1821 Revolution.
