The MURAL international public art festival, now recognized as the largest gathering of urban art in North America, is back for its 4th edition from 9th June to 19th June 2016. The ten-day event is held in and around the St-Laurent Boulevard in Montreal. Adding to the already rich body of work, there will be twenty new murals produced this year and will spread from the Quartier des Spectacles to the Mile End, bringing MURAL’s permanent public legacy to more than 60 major works.
“On the eve of its 4th edition, the MURAL Festival has reached adulthood. Our program, which covers 11 days for the second consecutive year, has matured into a format that will enable the public to better appreciate our endeavor while preserving its boldness and originality” André Bathalon, Mural co-founder.
