Consider the Belvedere
Hard to get much information on the Vancouver Mural Festival, apart from its team, its muralists, its sponsors and its locations.
Among the Festival's locations is the Belvedere at the northwest corner of 10th and Main. The Belvedere is an apartment building that has some very small suites -- but also some very affordable rents. A number of artists live there.
Nice of the Belvedere's landlords to offer up the building to the Festival's muralists. Not so nice that these landlords abandoned their tenants after half-assed repairs to the building's vermin-ridden walls, floors and ceilings.
