Our Pick of the Week: MURAL Block Party

Stackt is about to get much more colourful because Montreal art festival MURAL is taking over Toronto’s shipping container market this week (28 Bathurst St.) for the MURAL Block Party, a three-day event offering visitors the chance to attend the live creation of murals, music, art exhibitions, panels, and more.

The block party kicks off Friday, August 30, at 1:30 p.m. with a panel discussion about urban art in Canada featuring Stackt programming director Eli Klein, MURAL director Pierre-Alain Benoit, Anjuli Solanki of STEPS Initiative, Steve Ferrara of Well & Good, and a representative from StreetARTToronto. 

Featured artists include Toronto’s Ness Lee, Montreal sculptor Laurence Vallières, Canadian graffiti artist Bacon, and Irish contemporary artist MASER. Visitors can also look forward to a Hennessy mixology event and a party by artist collective Moonshine featuring Toronto and Montreal-based DJs spinning Afro electro, deep house, club, baile funk, coupé décalé, and more. Admission is free!
