@ The Mural Festival

The Main Street corridor is a whole lot brighter today. Thanks to the Vancouver Mural Festival – founded by David Vertesi and Gabriel Hall and supported by the City and community partners – Main Street now has more than 35 new permanent murals between 16th Avenue and Prior Street.

On a sunny Saturday, Vancouverites and visitors came down to Main to admire the new creations, watch artists at work and take in the surrounding rumpus.

People were jumping in and creating art of their own.
