The Montreal MURAL International Public Art Festival
The Mural Festival will bring together over 35 local and international artists to exhibit their work over a 1.5 mile stretch of street-turned-outdoor gallery on Saint Laurent Boulevard from June 13 to 16, 2013. This innovative initiative is a true celebration of creativity that will reaffirm the Boulevard’s (called The Main) position as a must-visit destination.
Nearly 20 unique murals will be created as part of the event, transforming the appearance of Saint Laurent Boulevard for the next year. Besides the ongoing creation of these works, each evening will feature a special event where festival-goers can gather and continue to celebrate creativity together. The programming also includes a series of family-friendly activities, starting each afternoon of the event.
The 2013 edition of MURAL will bring together internationally renowned artists such as Ricardo Cavolo (Spain), ROA (Belgium), Escif (Spain), Phlegm (England) and Pixel Pancho (Italy), along with numerous Montreal artists, including Omen, Jason Botkin, Labrona, Other, A’shop, Le Bonnard, Paria Crew, Skin Jackin, Garbage Beauty, En Masse and Stikki Peaches.
Finally, Saturday the 15th will be capped by the Oshee & Aga Block Party, a free outdoor concert featuring DJ Ryan Emsworth, Grandtheft, Prison Guard, KenLo Craqnuques and Jeanbart & RRKelly. The Block Party is presented in collaboration with Osheaga.
