I was lucky to get a light break to Madeira at the end of January. Funchal has a wonderful project in many parts of its old town area. I want to share some of those pieces I took photos of along Rua de Santa Maria.
For more information, visit the Projecto artE pORtas aBertas (the arT of oPEn doORs) website. Here is their description of this project:
It is a project to open the doors of the city of Funchal to art and culture. The doors were not “virtual entrances”, but rather old and forgotten. These doors are from abandoned shops and deteriorated areas that take on new life, in order to sensitize people filling the streets with cultural and artistic events.
The website link is excellent so if you are trying to find out the name of the artists and where these doors are you can do so. I would go back to Funchal just to be able to find all the doors. It is such a great idea.
