The Nextfest Mural Program pairs an established mural painter with a student painter to create a new work. We couldn’t be happier to have Jill Stanton as our lead artist this year. Head over to the eastside of the Varscona Theatre to see Edmonton’s newest mural!


Wanna get some of the visual art in your ear holes as you wander the galleries? Drop by The Roxy on Gateway and we will toss you a classic iPod to listen to at each venue where you can hear from the artists themselves as you view their work. Collateral is required to take an iPod out of the venue.
