The second annual Rust Magic Mural Festival is in its final days. Some artists are putting the finishing touches on their murals while others will be painting up until the last day of the festival. Soon every Edmontonian and visitor to our fair city will get to reap the benefits of all the hard work Trevor Peters and Annaliza Toledo have put into organizing this splendiferous event. With their festival producing over 30 new murals around the city, Trevor and Annaliza may have forced the curators of Art Tour YEG to create an entirely new street art tour.
One of those new murals is on the side of McElheran's Fine Furniture. We chatted with Jeff McElheran about street art and why he decided to participate in Rust Magic.
There are two more festival events: an art show at the Fresh Canvas Gallery (#1 10340 134 Street) from 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. and a wrap party at Ace Coffee Roasters from 12:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. when the festival ends on Sunday, July 30.
