Postcard from Montreal: Street Art

 

One of the things I love most about a place is its art. Whether it is in a museum or on the street, art can tell you a lot about where you are. Montreal is well-known for its street art, boasting gorgeous, building-size murals painted by both famous and lesser-known street artists.

There is also plenty of public art and temporary outdoor art installations – so wander at will. You will not only find great art, but friendly people, incredible food, and So Much shopping.

When we were driving around Montreal, I kept snapping photos of graffiti on buildings. If only I had had this google map, we could have seen even MORE great street art!

 

 

Tip: If you can, get out and walk. Many urban murals are located off main streets, along alleys and on smaller streets.

  1. I love Montreal. We live near this lovely European-like city, have Canadian relatives, and been there many times but I’ve not attended to the street art. Thanks for bringing it to my attention!

    • Lucky lucky lucky – I’d love to be closer to Canada.
