As part of the celebrations for the U.S. being the Honoured Country at the Thessaloniki International Fair 2018, the U.S. Embassy in Greece is presenting the American Art Everywhere exhibition.
Since September 7th, Greece’s second city has been filled with artwork by prominent and diverse American artists.
The pieces are seen all over town, from the airport to the port to the City Hall and even on the buses crisscrossing the city.
US Ambassador Geoffrey Pyatt opened the exhibition in Thessaloniki.
