Day 05 I ARM Collective

Monday was the day to take out the scaffoldings, change some of the public lights, make the last retouches and… finally, view the mural in his full splendour.

After dinner we had the talk with the artists at the foyer of the Teatro-Cine. Every question was answered and we were able to know a little bit more about the history and the imaginary world of the ARM Collective. We finish with a visit to the building to exchange opinions about the intervention.

Day 04 I ARM Collective

That was on sunday. We worked hard, until 4:30 am, but ARM Collective achieve the goal and finished their work. 4 facades of an old building in the old town of Covilhã.

One old man that pased by told us with a smile in his face: “You are sinners, you shouldn’t work on Sunday” and finished with a “great work, congratulations, something like this was needed here”. I think that this kind of reactions make the day of all of us.

Soon we will post pictures of the final work, without the scaffoldings.

Day 03 I ARM Collective

Yesterday the ARM Collective started to work also in the other walls of the building. The piece is getting bigger and better every hour that goes by.

Today they will continue, but only after a morning brake and a fast visit to the Beira Interior region. You will find us again near Santa Maria church from 15:30 p.m. We’re expecting for your visit!
