Bordeaux, the street art cap­i­tal

Bordeaux Wine Trip - - Bordeaux Wine Routes -

Street art is pop­ping up more and more on the walls of Bordeaux! Ini­tia­tives and events to pro­mote this art form are mul­ti­ply­ing: the M.U.R and its ephemeral fres­cos (www.lemur­de­bor­deaux.tum­blr.com); the “Trans­ferts” as­so­ci­a­tion, which brings to­gether all street artists in an em­blem­atic place every year; and Vi­bra­tions Ur­baines, a na­tional ur­ban cul­tural event which will be cel­e­brat­ing its 20th birth­day in 2017. www.vi­bra­tions-ur­baines.net. On top of this, the Dar­win ecosystem is bring­ing street art to the fore with street art across its walls, cov­ered in thought-pro­vok­ing im­ages, draw­ings and tags. www.dar­win.camp.fr Fi­nally, for the per­fect mar­riage of tourism and street art, you can take a tour around Bordeaux on a bike ex­pe­ri­ence the city’s most beau­ti­ful fres­cos. Tours avail­able from the Bordeaux Tourist Of­fice (Of­fice de Tourisme de Bordeaux Métropole). www.bordeaux-tourisme.com
