Montreal 10th MURAL festival

MURAL Festival 2019 – Montreal is a vibrant city and nowhere is this fact more evident than on the vibrant murals that cover the city’s landscape. The 2019 Montreal MURAL Festival is more diverse than ever with a wide variety of new murals, innovative art projects, and free music events. The 7th edition of the public art festival presented by Fido will take place between June 6 to June 16 with a VIP Opening Night on June 5th at the VIP Zone presented by Hennessy. As always, the main action is taking place in a free-access pedestrian zone on Boulevard Saint-Laurent stretching from Sherbrooke Street to Mont-Royal, with another hub in the Quartier des spectacles near Place des Arts.

New murals will bring the permanent collection to nearly one-hundred monumental art exhibits. However this year, in addition to the striking painted walls that are its signature attraction, the MURAL festival features an innovative line-up of art installations and other creations that make use of digital platforms and original materials. Major projects include a wall installation of LED light strips by Spanish artist Spider Tag, a first of its kind in North America; a complete decoration of a car wash and a car by American artist Joshua Vides presented by Mercedes Benz-Canada in collaboration with SDC Laurier-Ouest; a series of large-scale sculptures by Montreal artist Laurence Vallières presented by Little Burgundy; digital creation workshops, and interactive architectural projections with a Tagtool application presented by TD Bank in collaboration with MAPP Montreal; and a tromp l’oeil (optical illusion) art piece painted on the sidewalk by Dutch artist Leon Keer.

As for the muralists, the festival’s 2019 edition will bring together major Canadian artists and renowned international artists, including Miss Van (FRA), Insane51 (GRE), PichioAvo (SPA), Hyuro (ARG), Gleo (COL), Ben Johnston (CAN), Germ Dee (CAN), Marc-Oliver Lamothe (CAN), Waxhead (CAN), and many others. MURAL is also offering ten evenings of free musical events this year. These will showcase artists like Milk & Bone, Alaclair, Ensemble, Moonshine, and many others. The MURAL Festival’s main zone between Milton and Prince-Arthur will be reconfigured to make the space more user-friendly while its famous terrasse will have more culinary options on offer. The Grill Saint-Laurent which kickstarts summer gastronomic events on The Boulevard in conjunction with MURAL will still be held in the main fest-zone but will take place over four days, from June 11 to June 14.
