South Granville x Vancouver Mural Festival
As one of Vancouver’s renowned art districts, South Granville is home to impressive art galleries but also to stunning murals! As the Vancouver Mural Fest is expanding its area, South Granville is getting additional street pieces for you to explore… and to take gorgeous selfies with!
Traditionally, the VMF had been concentrated in the Mount Pleasant and Strathcona areas but as a reaction to COVID-19, it expands to include South Granville, Robson Street, Gastown, Downtown, the West End, Marpole and the River District.
In total, over 60 new pieces of public art will be created from Aug. 18 to Sept. 7. The VMF is also offering free, limited-capacity walking tours for people who pre-register here.
