CISCO Systems, the world leader in information systems and Web networks, has partnered with the Conseil des arts de Montréal to award a grant designed to recognize and encourage talented Montréal artists.

In 2015, the Mural public art festival was the lucky recipient. For three years now, Mural has invited around twenty world-renowned artists to paint murals along Saint-Laurent boulevard, right before the eyes of passersby and festivalgoers. This lively urban art event also features live music concerts, lectures, seminars, exhibitions and installations. For eleven days in June, Saint-Laurent becomes a destination for avant-garde, open-air creativity that exemplifies and unifies the visual arts scene in Montréal.

By contributing to the creative identity of the city with exciting public art, Mural has proved to be a visionary and innovative festival, true to the spirit of Montréal.
