Beaux Dégâts tends to create a parallel with street art and Fine Arts. It puts forward what has been forgotten by many artistic institutions, the reality of the artists from the street, the importance of community, sharing, accessibility, the unusual.
For over two hours, six teams of artists will improvise 8” by 8” murals on a theme given the night of the event. Each team will research and appropriate visual references to conceptualize their creation in front of the public. All mediums are allowed except spray paint. During the night, the public votes for their favourite painting with their Pabst beer cans. The team that will have collected the most cans will win the right to paint over the other creations if they so wish.
