Ricardo Cavolo and numerous other high profile writers are making their way to Montreal for an arts festival that will deck “The Main,” or Boulevard St. Lawrence, in a fine array of murals as part of a Mural Festival. The event is set to launch on June 13th and will last all weekend.
A new arts festival will bring together avant-garde local and international artists to create murals along a two-kilometre stretch of Saint-Laurent Boulevard in downtown Montreal, organizers said Tuesday.
