The Beltline Urban Murals Project is an initiative by the Beltline Neighbourhoods Association to showcase art, promote tourism and local businesses, improve the public realm and build community spirit in Calgary’s Beltline neighbourhoods.

“Don’t have much to say that wouldn’t look better on a wall”
– BiP

Art belongs in public, and buildings are the best canvasses.

BUMP celebrates the diversity, talent and vibrant character of the Beltline through works of art that are thought-provoking, whimsical, awe-inspiring, creative and powerful. The 2018 murals will be painted this August ending with a 3-day festival of artist talks, mural tours, and an alley party.
