A popular art project in Aberdeen produced colourful results throughout 2017 and will continue to shine a light on creative activities in the Granite City in 2018. The Painted Doors project, part of Aberdeen Inspired’s commitment to supporting local artists and homegrown talent is now in its third year, it is the first of its kind in the UK which has inspired similar projects in Perth and Dundee.
The project is curated by local artist Mary Butterworth and aims to turn abandoned doorways into works of art, making the city’s streets a more interesting and vibrant place to be. Doors can be found along Langstane Place, Windmill Brae, the Merchant Quarter and Correction Wynd and have been a hit with residents and visitors to Aberdeen.
New doors have been added to the project from a range of artists, both established and emerging, from a variety of backgrounds, who live and work in Aberdeen and the surrounding area. Artists – painters, designers, street artists, illustrators and makers…from all different disciplines and backgrounds are on display with over 30 doors and counting. Proceeds are used to fund projects designed to improve the business district
