SAC Walls Project

Carefully selected from 100,000s of images, drawing from the archives of museums, independent artists, outsiders, and scientific troves, these images have been lost, unseen, overused or set free, here to offer some small treasures for the exterior barricaded windows of Salamanca Arts Centre.
