Street art in Carlow Town (1)

June can be called the month of art and culture.

In June we have Carlow Arts Festival. It is an annual multi-disciplinary arts festival takes place in Carlow and is the first of the summer arts festivals in Ireland.

As part of this festival many street arts projects arose in Carlow Town, since 2014. Local artists revived some of the grey and sad buildings by creating an artistic projects on it.

I love street arts in Carlow Town so I will started series of posts about it and today the first one.

Opposite to Shamrock Plaza in Carlow Town there is a big derelict building covered on artwork. One its side it`s painted make it looks like real house. And on other its side there is an artwork painted by The Pure Thinking Community Group showing the most famous attractions of County Carlow like: Brownshill Dolmen, Carlow Railway Station, Carlow Courthouse, The Liberty Tree, Carlow Cathedral, Carlow College, Carlow Castle, St. Mary`s Church of Ireland, Wellington Bridge and Carlow Lonely Tree.

When you will turned left from Shamrock Square you will see another derelict houses, on Barrack Street in Carlow town, got painted to make its looks like real houses – `Turning ugly into beautifull`.
