“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.

The Beltline Urban Mural Project (BUMP) is a project to showcase art, attract people to the community, promote tourism and local business, improve the public realm and build community spirit in Calgary’s Beltline community. 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.

 

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.
