The Vancouver Mural Festival launched this summer, with walking tours and live music all around the Mount Pleasant, Main Street, and False Creek Flats area. Over 40 murals popped up, splashing the neighbourhood with colour and providing many priceless photo ops. If you missed the tour on opening weekend, there’s another coming up on Saturday.
Vancouver Mural Festival Tour
When: Saturday, September 17, 2016 from 1:00pm to 4:00pm
Register: Sign up online here.
ART/SEEN Vancouver hosted 7 guided tours attended by over 100 guests during the festival’s opening weekend and they are coming back for an encore trip before the days get short and the rain starts falling.
“This tour explores the majority of the collection of mural sites from the top of Main & 12th to the industrial zone. Highlights include Hootsuite’s wrap-around by Scott Sueme (largest mural of the festival), the German duo LOW BROS mural on digital communication, and the ambitious collection of murals at the Arts Factory and Fontile Warehouse. We’ll get you connected to the artists’ vision, medium and creative process, and talk about the power of public art in placemaking and community building.”
The Vancouver Mural Festival was presented in partnership with the The City Of Vancouver, Mount Pleasant Business Improvement Area, and Burrard Arts Foundation. Follow the conversation online @VanMuralFest and sign up for Saturday’s tour via ART/SEEN.
