Arts and Crafts in Barreiro

This fascinating mural adorns the front of an old fire station in Barreiro in Portugal.
The Volunteer Firemen Association of the Caminhos de Ferro do Sul e Sueste (Associação Humanitária dos Bombeiros Voluntários dos Caminhos de Ferro do Sul e Sueste), founded in July 1894, had its headquarters here until 2008.

ADAO, Barreiro, Portugal, March 2020

In 2015, the Association for the Development of Arts and Crafts (ADAO) was created and has taken over the premises for their active community of artists, providing workspace, educational workshops and exhibitions.

Enjoying street art has become a regular event on my travels around the world: more of my findings can be seen here
For even more art, pop over to see Sami at Monday Mural (apologies to Sami and a number of blogspot.com bloggers – my comments just seem to vanish into the ether)
