More than 1,000 works of public art, produced by nearly 500 local and international artists, are scattered throughout the city of Montreal. Although hundreds of sculptures comprise part of the city’s public art displays, Montreal also carves out a place for itself with mural art. The city is now competing with larger international capitals, like Paris, Buenos Aires and Berlin — cities long known for magnificent graffiti art and outdoor murals.

On the walls of Montreal’s Plateau neighborhood, between Laurier and Mont-Royal, visitors soak up the mural art displayed in this literally colorful neighborhood. In the borough of Verdun, look at the wonderful public art between the Lasalle and Verdun metro stations. In the Hochelaga-Maisonneuve borough, visit Promenade Ontario, with its nice shops, cafés and bistros and the works of many muralists.

Several Montreal companies, like Spade & Palacio and Viator, offer mural tours with professional guides. Using bikes or walking, the guides cover Boulevard Saint-Laurent with interesting detours to lesser-known streets and alleys. Montreal was the first Canadian city to develop wall murals as public art in the 1970s, and the muralist movement in the city has become more popular with each passing decade.

The 10th Montreal MURAL Festival takes place June 9–19. The festival transforms Saint-Laurent Boulevard into a veritable open-air museum, where the talents of local and international mural artists come together.

Workshop Kitchen + Bar Review

Palm Springs became a destination of legend when Hollywood’s biggest and brightest during cinema’s “Golden Age” turned the desert community into their glamourous backyard. While restaurants and hotels epitomizing definitive Palm Springs luxury open, adapt and change with the times, it says something that one of its hottest restaurants sets up an outpost back in Los Angeles. And that’s exactly what chef Michael Beckman and restaurateur Joe Mourani did on the southern tip of the always-evolving Fairfax District.

Luxuriate in London

My husband and I recently traveled to London, England, on vacation, our farthest trip since the pandemic started. We were there for longer than a week and planned to squeeze in as much sightseeing as possible during our stay. Ahead of our trip, we knew we would want to mix in some relaxation, so we booked a couple’s massage at The Lanesborough’s spa halfway into our visit.

Charter a Yacht for a Luxurious and Liberating Sailing Experience

Since my last name is Kapitanski, I had to learn how to sail!” joked Boris Kapitanski while telling me about the 45-foot catamaran yacht he chartered with his wife and friends to sail through Croatia. They could have had it all: the captain, the chef, all the water toys, everything anyone would want to make their trip exactly how they desired. Yet they chose to forego most of that. “We like to cook. The kitchen was enclosed with windows on the top deck. We sailed past the most beautiful surroundings,” he reminisced. Jagged cliffs, textured forests and land singing with wildlife drifted by while they grilled freshly caught fish.
