Walls a lot of the time reserved for graffiti are being beautified by artists as part of the Nelson and District Arts Council Mural Festival.

Murals have been popping up at the city’s I.O.D.E. Park to span the upper wall (alongside Victoria Street), in the alley behind Snowpack, in the alley next to Outer Clove Restaurant and on Falls Street next to Nelson branch of the BC SPCA.

Artists were selected by a five-member, arm’s length jury who represent a cross section of interests in the community.

All supplies and equipment are provided by the festival and they will be will be using both public and private walls.

NDAC is the proponent of both applications, with funding coming through its BC Arts Council operating grant, the City of Nelson and the Columbia Basin Trust.
