Weekend art explosion

On Friday and Saturday, Athens is going to be invaded by artwork and performances in various places open to the public with the Athens Arts Unleashed event. Some of it is unconventional. Read this introduction and look at the brochure (a PDF), or at least be forewarned:
Arts Unleashed is a celebration of Athens’ vibrant arts community. During this weekend, more than sixty Athens poets, musicians, actors, dancers, and visual artists take to the streets (and parks and stores) to bring the arts into neighborhoods throughout the city. Many of the works presented during this event are new original pieces. Some are site-specific (designed especially for a certain location), while other activities just transpose art to a place that is untraditional—such as a dog park or a grocery store.
