Murals of Hope

Supporting local artists and businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic.

We are so excited to be supporting the Vancouver Mural Festival while they bring hope, positivity and colour to the streets of Vancouver amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

With boarded-up windows becoming an increasingly common occurrence in neighbourhoods across the city, VMF is enlisting a large group of its alumni and other local artists to create temporary mural artwork to these locations.

While we understand the excitement of live mural painting, we strongly urge the public to stay home and enjoy the progress of the murals by following #MakeArtWhileApart through our Instagram and Facebook.

The Downtown Vancouver BIA has financially supported these artists to create the murals and has paid for the anti-graffiti coating so that businesses are not out of pocket for their upkeep.
