YUL! Pop-Up art pARTy.

YUL  hosted a ‘party du quARTtier’ on Sunday. And what a Pop-Up Party! The third artist commissioned by YUL to create a mural along the René-Lévesque hoarding around the development project (between Lucien L’Allier & MacKay), Jasper Wong was there. Great street artists from Wzards Gangs collaborated.

Food trucks – M. Crémeux and Winneburger – kept everyone’s energy up for dancing to the music of DJs High Klassified and Compton Chic. And the day stayed sunny; at least for awhile. Station 16 silk-screened ‘brown bags’ on site.

The street art was fabulous! Ru, of Wzards Gang, and Nixon were closely watched by admirers as they created huge murals on the now-abandoned La Brochetterie,  part of the YUL property. The Beat hung out with the crowd.TheBeatHuge bean bags, thoughtfully provided by MURALE organizer Yan Martel of LNDMRK, were used by couples, families, and one tiny Yorkshire terrier. ppl3All in all, a day not to have missed. Then the rains came, but nothing will dampen the memory. At the end of the rains there is always a rainbow!rainbow
