Spend a Sunday at the Vancouver Mural Festival

Vancouver Mural Festival | A Life Well Consumed
Street murals are becoming a welcomed thing in Vancouver. So much, that we have a yearly Vancouver mural festival! I think it’s such a cool initiative to commission work by local artists. It gives life to the buildings and neighbourhoods. Who wouldn’t want to see cool murals on their daily commute?

Curtis and I took Piper for a little family afternoon a couple of weekends ago. It was a beautiful sunny day and we walked around for hours. We took a lot of photos, walked every few feet and got stopped by a stranger wanting to pet Piper and stopped for baked goods and iced coffees. It was such a fun way to spend a Sunday.

The city has murals popping up all over, but the Vancouver Mural Festival is in Mount Pleasant down allies and on tech start-ups like Hootsuite. You can find the map and sign up for tours here. You can also find the artists for 2017 and past murals here.

    The colours are so gorgeous! Mural artwork can be such masterpieces! It’s great to see something like this celebrating that! Would love to go, but being in the UK it’s a little far away hehe.
    Stunning photography! Love it
