The Popsilos circuit is officially open today, June 30! 

We've just opened the Popsilos circuit, today June 30, for the busy summer season! Five monumental murals painted on farm silos in the Prescott and Russell region are now ready to be discovered. The silos offer a celebratory canvas for urban and art and agriculture. The merger of urban and rural creates a new Canadian experience, in a circuit, unexpected and and sensorial, a first of its kind in Canada. Visitors of the circuit are invited to veer off the route and discover local products to complement their experience. Popsilos is perfect for day-trippers seeking serendipitous experiences. The circuit is set to be opened from June 30th until October 31st. 

Popsilos and Ashop begin production

Eight artists will begin the production of five large-scale murals on farm silos starting now through to May 30th for the Popsilos project, a touristic circuit combining arts and agrifood in the Prescott and Russell countryside in celebration of Canada’s 150th. The public is invited to visit the sites during production while being respectful of the artists at work and everyone’s safety. The experienced mural artists were selected by a committee comprised of representatives from the Prescott-Russell Arts Council, the farm owners having submitted their silo for the project, the community, Popsilos and the international urban art agency Ashop, hired as artistic co-producer of the project.

The impressive lineup of artists includes:

Beau’s All Natural Brewing Company joins Popsilos as a “Champion of local” partner

Trailblazer, Beau’s All Natural Brewing Company has joined the Popsilos project as a “Champion of local” partner. Beau’s is the perfect example of a small producer who made it big while staying true to its own way of doing things and is an inspiration to smaller producers in the region.

Popsilos partners with the St-Albert Cheese Co-operative

One of the region’s pillars, the St-Albert Cheese Co-operative has joined the Popsilos adventure as a “Champion of local” partner. We are very excited to have them onboard! The St-Albert Cheese Co-operative will be a stop on the Popsilos circuit where visitors can eat and drink and it will feature an outdoor mural relating it to the outdoor gallery that is the Popsilos circuit.
