Welcome

The Beltline Urban Mural Project (BUMP) is a community-driven project to showcase art, promote Calgary, and transform the city into an inviting open air gallery. Now in its third year, BUMP has curated a diverse portfolio of local, national and international artists who have created eye-catching, inspiring and beautiful murals.

 

We believe that public art can enrich communities, create captivating places, celebrate diversity, challenge ideas, provoke discussion, and add beauty to the everyday.

 

We’re thrilled to kick off this year’s BUMP Festival August 28th to 31st marking the addition of sixteen new murals with free guided mural tours, artist talks, live music and outdoor cinema you won’t want to miss.

On her debut EP Effervescence, due out independently on August 28, the Calgary-by-way-of-Winnipeg artist bridges the seductive, iconoclastic electronics of FKA twigs, the bedroom R&B of Jessy Lanza, and the minimalist-pop of James Blake to shape her sonic vision.

BEAUTIFUL LOSERS (2008)

Beautiful Losers celebrates the spirit behind one of the most influential cultural moments of a generation. In the early 1990’s a loose-knit group of likeminded outsiders found common ground at a little NYC storefront gallery. Rooted in the DIY (do-it-yourself) subcultures of skateboarding, surf, punk, hip-hop & graffiti, they made art that reflected the lifestyles they led. Developing their craft with almost no influence from the “establishment” art world, this group, and the subcultures they sprang from, has now become a movement that has been transforming pop culture. Starring Ed Templeton who skated pro for New Skateboards winning awards all over the world, Harmony Korine who wrote the cult favorite Kids and then went on to direct Gummo and most recently Mister Lonely and Mike Mills who designed album covers for The Beastie Boys, Beck, Sonic Youth and directed the movie Thumbsucker. Also starring Barry McGee, Chris Johanson, Geoff McFetridge, Jo Jackson, Margaret Kilgallen, Stephen Powers, Thomas Campbell and Shepard Fairey who has experienced recent success with the now famous ‘Hope’ poster featuring Barack Obama.
