Massive art energizes the city
This year, spot Montréal artists and artists from across Canada as they create storeys-high murals on building facades among the blocks to the east and west of Saint-Laurent Boulevard, from Sherbrooke Street to Mont-Royal Avenue. MURAL's new urban art experience, Corridart, also respects physical distancing while encouraging a collective experience: on Saint-Laurent Boulevard, stroll alongside artwork on moving panels – more art will be added as the summer days go by, so expect to see something new with every visit.
Big-time virtual realities
Even if you can't be in Montréal, you'll get to see every one of this year's murals on the MURAL Festival website, where you can take a virtual tour of the MURAL fest locations. Learn more about street art and the art of mural-making in online lectures and interviews with artists. MURAL's concerts and outdoor dance parties move online too this year – expect the festival's usual feast for the ears and the eyes, as electronic and hip-hop artists collaborate with digital visual artists in a virtual realm.
