A passport to discovering Montréal's collection of public art

2013

The More Than 100 Works of Public Art – 5 Tours to Discover map helps Montrealers and tourists head out on a visit of the city’s impressive collection of public art.

Testimony to the many forms of expression adopted by local and international artists, the works of public art dotting the Montréal landscape also provide a great excuse to explore its different neighbourhoods. The map charts out five different tours—all of which tell part of the story of Montréal, as well as reveal the cultural riches and creativity that enliven the city—showcasing selections from the over 1,000 works of the collection owned variously by the Ville de Montréal, STM, private collectors, major companies, and public institutions. Each of the tours is associated with a specific neighbourhood. Art lovers can in turn explore the Quartier des Spectacles, the Museum Quarter anchored by the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, downtown, Parc Jean-Drapeau and Old Montréal. 

The public art map provides a great way to discover public art and Montreal, a place that encourages the coming together of different people and cultures.
