Rural Mural (#SFRM)

SFRM saw a collective of local, Scottish and international artists paint large-scale murals across Dumfries and Galloway for Spring Fling 2014; adorning buildings, shops, vehicles and a few unexpected things too.

SFRM combined excellence of art production with cross discipline working between urban street artists and rural studio based visual artists, creating a series of murals, installations and painted vehicles across Dumfries and Galloway for Spring Fling 2014.

Through working with Recoat, SFRM enhanced Spring Fling, Scotland’s nationally acclaimed visual art and craft event and gave two ambitious organisations the chance to work together using complimentary skills, knowledge and expertise. The project engaged with local communities through street art workshops, developed national and international audiences, and encouraged movement around Dumfries and Galloway. Huge murals appeared on houses, barns and even a disused electricity sub-station across Dumfries and Galloway.
