The visual arts have as a reference point the artistic and especially the sculptural tradition of Paros. Contemporary artists participating in the festival are inspired by the special character of the village and folklore and create unique projects transforming the local tradition in contemporary multicultural artwork.

The visual design of Routes in Marpissa aims at an experiential approach on works of art by the general public. This is accomplished through workshops, performances, art installations, and exhibitions, adapted to the environment of the settlement, at the presence of the artists.
