Vancouver is going to get a lot more colourful.
The second annual Vancouver Mural Festival will run from June 24 to August 12 in various locations around the city.
The Vancouver Mural Festival is the city’s largest display of street art, which features murals that have transformed the city’s blank walls into incredible pieces of artwork.
The festival also acts as a platform to connect Vancouver’s growing art scene with wider audiences at a local and international scale.
Take a guided tour of all the art pieces around the city to learn more about the artists and their work.
The tours will connect you with the artists’ vision and creative process, and give you behind the scenes information about how the murals were designed. 25% of each ticket purchased will go directly to support the festival.
Last year’s festival was a massive success and resulted in 41 new permanent murals around the city.
