The organizers of the Up Here Urban Art and Music Festival announced this morning the rooftop of Science North will become the canvas for muralists visiting the city as part of the festival, set for Aug. 11-13.

Ella and Pitr, a world-renowned urban art duo from France, are known for their giant rooftop murals that are visible from space and Google Maps.

“This has the potential to literally put Sudbury on the map,” organizer Christian Pelletier told Sudbury.com back in the spring. “We keep telling ourselves Sudbury is a haven for public art, and this is a great way to prove it.”
