VANCOUVER’S DOWNTOWN EASTSIDE OUTDOOR MURALS with Richard Tetrault
Saturday November 2, 11am – 12:30pm
Meet at Raven’s Eye Studio, 456 E. Hastings
There are over eighty murals on the walls of buildings in Vancouver’s East End and muralist and local award-winning artist Richard Tetrault leads us on a walking tour of about a dozen of those murals located in the Downtown Eastside. The walk begins at Raven’s Eye Studio where you’ll see Western Canada’s largest mural, Through the Eye of the Raven, on the west wall of the Orwell Hotel. The walk ends at Richard’s most recent project in the DTES, the Radius Mural in the courtyard of the Firehall Arts Centre. With so many murals on neighbourhood walls, there are sure to be surprises around every corner! For further details please visit the interactive mural map at www.muralsvancouver.ca, a website built with the support of the City of Vancouver Great Beginnings Program. $10 for non-residents, pay-what-you-can for local residents
This event was on Day 11 of the 12 Days of the Heart of the City Festival. Please check the website for more events!
