City streets are look­ing much brighter

Vancouver Magazine - - Cover Story -

For proof that the ir­ri­tat­ing “No Fun City” moniker can nally be buried, look to the colour-soaked fa­cades of Mount Pleas­ant, Strath­cona or, heck, even once-dreary al­ley­ways down­town. Be­tween the Van­cou­ver Mu­ral Fes­ti­val paint­ing the town and More Awe­some Now—the laneway “ac­ti­va­tion” that pink-washed an al­ley near Granville and Hast­ings—our civic land­scape is more vi­brant than ever. And that’s not just be­cause of fresh paint; props are also due to projects like Pub­lic Disco that are bring­ing the party to our newly spruced-up streets.
