Quinpool Murals

This Summer, we were so very fortunate to have the Halifax Mural Festival take place on Quinpool Road.

Over the course of a week, both well-established and emerging artists brought colour to Quinpool from one end of the business district to the other creating 9 murals and painting 6 power boxes. (Map of locations can be found at the bottom of the page)

We would like to thank ALL the amazing artists who called Quinpool home while they were working. The talent and creativity of these artists has changed the ‘vibe’ on Quinpool and has brought so much colour and life to the Quinpool Neighbourhood!

Public art plays an important role in generating interest in the area by drawing in local residents and tourists to this part of the city. Art has the ability to create a sense of energy, to inspire and uplift. To increase the perception of safety, and has been proven to decrease stress resulting in an overall mood booster. It also is a powerful tool in contributing to the sense of community by adding creative and colour elements to areas with limited green spaces.
