Winnipeg, Canada Street Art Murals

The Street Art and Murals of Winnipeg, Canada

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, I love street art!  We’ve scoped out street art and murals in cities such as Miami, Belfast, Lake Worth, and many more, so when I read about all the murals of Winnipeg, I knew we had to check them out.  There are over 400 murals throughout Winnipeg, so obviously on a short trip, we didn’t have time to find them all; however, we did entertain ourselves with an afternoon of driving around and searching for the art.

The city’s mural program was started in 1994 by Take Pride Winnipeg! with a goal to reduce illegal graffiti, bring color to the city and to show Manitoba’s history and landscapes through art. The murals definitely add excitement to the city!  Here’s a glimpse of the murals we found on our short trip to Winnipeg:

    I am learning so much about Winnipeg from you! My fav mural was the library/office – the books looked so realistic.

    Even though I live near Winnipeg, I am always discovering new pieces of street art in hidden places.

    Your photos are amazing! Since I have started getting into photography more seriously, I have started to notice how much street art Winnipeg really has. There is a lot!

    Thanks for showcasing some of it and I hope you enjoyed Winnipeg! 🙂

    I hadn’t considered going to Canada for the street map – but wow what gorgeous murals. I love street art too. They did a similar project in Cuenca Ecuador to reduce graffiti with great results!
