RUST MAGIC + EMF: A COLLABORATION FOR PUBLIC ART
The city of Edmonton has come a long way in terms of public art, particularly with murals, and Rust Magic has been at the forefront of this evolution. The Rust team has completed many impressive murals, including the Okuda San Miguel mural and the Pichiavo mural, which have become landmarks in Edmonton.
Rust Magic was founded by Annaliza Toledo and Trevor Peters, who have been working together for years to create a platform for street art in the city. Before moving to warmer climates, they led an impressive team of artists and volunteers who helped bring the Rust Magic Festival and vision to life.
The team's dedication and hard work have been a major factor in the growth and success of Edmonton's mural scene. They have created a strong foundation, encouraging more artists to join and helping to get the city recognized as a hub for street art in Canada.
Now, as the Edmonton Mural Festival (EMF) takes center stage, Rust Magic will be collaborating with the festival as artists, educators, and guest curators. They will bring their history and network to the new ecosystem of the festival, further strengthening the present and brightening the future of yeg's local mural scene.
Rust Magic's collaboration with the festival is an exciting development for the city. It will bring together the established and emerging artists, and will provide opportunities for locals and visitors to appreciate and engage with the public art scene in Edmonton.
Rust Magic’s contribution to the city is undeniable. Their dedication to the art form and the community is an inspiration to all who appreciate the beauty and power of public art. Edmonton's mural scene would not be where it is today without the vision and hard work of Rust Magic. The EMF team is ecstatic and can't wait to see what this collaboration will produce in the coming years!
