Scotland and Asturias team up for Easter art hunt
15 April 2017 @ 12:31

SCOTLAND and Asturias have joined forces for an Easter 'art exchange' this weekend – today (Saturday), if you're in the north of Spain, you can enjoy a cultural treasure hunt around the streets of Oviedo, the birthplace of Formula 1 racing driver Fernando Alonso; or if you're in the UK, head up to Aberdeen and seek out the works of Asturian artists on Monday.

Participants are given 'treasure-hunt maps' and, if they find any of the works in either Scotland or Asturias, they get to keep them.

This fun scheme is the brainchild of Asturians Dalia Martínez – who has lived in Aberdeen for two years and signs off her artwork as Lady Thornfield – and Marta Fermín, manager of the Decero Creativo gallery in Oviedo.

They explain this is a cultural version of the traditional Easter egg hunt, and is the first of what they hope will be many exchanges between the two regions
