The Quartier Vanier Business Improvement Area, a non-profit organization representing over 466 property and business owners across Beechwood Avenue, Montreal Road and McArthur Avenue, has a vision of embracing creativity.

As such, we have invested a significant amount this year towards its vision for creating the TALLEST mural in Ottawa right here in Vanier. Yes, you read it right: the TALLEST mural in Ottawa.

To do this, we kicked it off with partnering with House of PainT, the largest urban arts organization in the city, plus the property owner of 261 Montréal Road who will be providing the 4-storey wall, the perfect canvas for what will become one of Ottawa’s most iconic murals.

Here are the top three benefits this project will provide to Vanier’s residents and businesses:

  1. Vanier will get more attention and attract professionals who want to live closer to downtown.
  2. Increased traffic from tourists who will surely spend money at local businesses.
  3. The mural will bring the community together and make it stronger.

We asked you, the community, to vote for your favourite mural design. Over 1000 votes were cast.

We are delighted to announce the winning artist team, two of Ottawa’s most revered visual artists are Mique Michelle and Kalkidan Assefa (aka drippin soul).

The official unveiling of the TALLEST mural will take place on June 10We expect a huge turnout at this event. We hope you can join us.

In order to meet our obligations towards the excellent artists we have engaged, and not to compromise on quality, we are a little under $10, 000 short to make this dream a reality.

Help us raise $5,000 to create THE Vanier Canada 150th event! With the community’s help, we will be able to create a long-lasting iconic mural, right here on Montreal Road.
