Portals Into Rutherglen

57 Main Street Rutherglen 3685

Arts Rutherglen has commenced an exciting and innovative new project; using street art to brighten up the doors and windows of Rutherglen’s historic Main Street businesses.

Rutherglen Arts group thought that some form of visual art could only enhance the beauty of our town and it was time to unlock the rich and varied history of our old shops. Thus the concept of ‘Portals into Rutherglen” was born.

Other towns paint silos (initially considered by Arts Rutherglen) or murals on walls but our street art concept is fresh and different, especially when we have incorporated a quirky element like ‘Spot the Wine Bottle’ into Kirrily Anderson’s first Portal image.

‘Portals into Rutherglen’ may be about the past but Arts Rutherglen is embracing the future with QR technology enabling visitors to obtain more information about the images with the use of their mobile phones.

There are currently five portals you can visit:

Portal 1: Aitken and Fullerton Grocers
Portal 2: Red Boot Shop
Portal 3: Mothers Little Helpers
Portal 4: Kit and Kaboodle
Portal 5: Symbols of Practice
