Walking in the city of Aveiro is a challenging way of finding street art works that brings color, rhythm and liven up to the most unusual places of the city and are present in the daily journeys. Although we do not always know or observe them carefully, for their diversity and artistic quality they already form a catalogue of urban art worthy of visit.
To celebrate the European Day of Artistic Creativity, with a starting point at the train station, the City Museum will take you to visit some of the examples of this contemporary artistic expression that in Aveiro is sign by some the main Portuguese artists.
