Art brings us all together. Through the power of imagery, we are transported through space and time. The beauty of visual interpretation takes complex situations (like the one we're in right now) and it makes us think. More importantly, it makes us feel.

Perhaps that's why the MURAL Festival is such a popular Montreal tradition. Of course, due to the pandemic, we can’t gather like we used to in previous years to celebrate the street art and mural creations. But one thing is for certain: art overcomes. That's what this year's MURAL Estival is all about.

If you're out and about this Sunday evening, you're going to want to make sure you stop and look up at the sky. For the first time in 33 years, a total lunar eclipse will be coinciding with a supermoon, and luckily for us, it will be visible right here in Montreal. Not only will you be able to see the moon turn a really cool red-y colour, but it'll be extra big and bright while it's happening.

The penumbral eclipse will start at 8:11pm, with the total eclipse starting at 10:11, peaking at 10:47, and ending at 11:23.  This total eclipse-supermoon combination won't be happening again until 2033, so you're going to want to go see it while you have a chance.
