This weekend the Gay Village will be over taken by artists!

Find out where the BoulevART is happening…

This weekend the Festival International Montréal en Arts (aka FIMA) will be taking over the streets of the Gay Village. The FIMA is a street festival, equal parts art market and art installation. Visitors can walk freely, talk to artists, check out their work, chat and ask questions. You can buy art or just browse around.

Like a good martini, it’s well balanced, arty and chill.

Anyway here’s little extract from the Festival International Montréal en Arts website:

“On a one kilometre stretch of St-Catherine Street, between St-Hubert and Papineau, will be laid out the greatest open air gallery east of Toronto. From July 2nd to the 5th, over 150 artists and artisans from the Americas, Europe and Africa will be united under the Montreal sun: painters, illustrators, photographs, jewellery makers, glassworkers, ceramists, digital artists, sculptors and serigraphs will please your eyes and mind on the BoulevART.”
To round out the cultural experience, you can expect to see contemporary dance shows, graffiti artists and, vital to any gay experience, many top notch Montréal DJs.

So get here already.

The exhibition runs along St. Catherine’s Street East (from St. Hubert to Papineau) until July 5th.
