Featured in the New York Times – 36 hours in Montreal

Over recent years Saint-Laurent boulevard has been transformed into the country’s premier street art corridor. Since the creation of the first graffiti culture gathering over 20 years ago, the more recent MURAL Festival, municipal and public non-profit organizations, our city, and rightly so, has become a world leader in the urban arts scene.

Shortly after the founding of Montreal, the Main became an important dividing line between east and west, French and English. Thanks to the growing immigrant communities along the thoroughfare, the artery ironically created a gathering point for all citizens.

Today, centuries later, these works of art are once again grouping locals and visitors, homebred artists and international, to congregate in the middle of where it all began. This is a vibrant street art walking tour along St. Laurent boulevard and its impressive outdoor art gallery.
