For the past two weekends, St. Laurent has been closed to all but foot traffic north of Sherbrooke. The annual street fair and Mural festival came together to bring art up and down the street. Pop up galleries were set up in store fronts, while pop up art was found on streets and stand up boxes. The murals, though, are the highlight.

A few of them in progress:
