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. The project funds the installation of murals throughout the community on buildings in locations that are visible, eye grabbing or otherwise currently unattractive or forgettable. BUMP is organized and run by the Beltline Neighbourhoods Association, with funding provided by various project sponsors.
The project celebrates the diversity, talent and vibrant character of the Beltline through works of art that are thought-provoking, whimsical, awe-inspiring, creative and powerful. BUMP believes that art belongs in public, and buildings are the best canvasses.
