BIXI Montréal is proud to be celebrating street art by partnering with the MURAL Festival, the 10th edition of which will be taking place from June 9 to 19! For the occasion, BIXI will be unveiling 50 bikes that have been transformed into unique works of art by 5 Montreal artists to celebrate the 50 million BIXI trips since 2009.
Just a few days after World Bicycle Day (June 3), five of these collector BIXI bikes will be on display during the MURAL Festival, at the corner of Prince-Arthur and Saint-Laurent Streets. As for the other 45 from the same collections, they can be ridden in the city throughout the season, and BIXISTs will even be able to use them for the trips proposed by Mural that highlight local art and culture. All the details are available on the BIXI Montréal website.
“BIXI Montréal is so excited to be participating in this colourful festival by encouraging local talent to share the excitement throughout the city streets! We would like to invite all Montrealers and visitors to come admire the exceptional work of five artists who have transformed 50 of our bikes, an initiative that shows that BIXI has an undeniable place in our hearts for the 14th year in a row,” said Pierre-Luc Marier, Integrated Marketing and Sales Manager at BIXI Montréal.
“We are extremely proud to be celebrating our 10th year with a partner like BIXI Montréal. With an emphasis on the international contemporary street art movement in the city, the MURAL Festival will be a unique opportunity this year for visitors and the international art community to discover BIXI’s major contribution to the Montreal landscape and the vitality of the city,” added Pierre-Alain Benoit, General Manager of MURAL.
