Tourisme Montreal adds murals

Tourisme Montréal has installed three new large-scale murals in the city as part of an ongoing effort to improve public spaces. One artwork, called Nehirowisiw Equilibre, is located on the Chez Doris women's shelter building. Created by Kaia'tanoron Dumoulin-Bush and Meky Ottawa, the work is intended to illustrate “the fragile balance that one can feel in a situation of vulnerability.” The second, located in Palace Alley, is by Lucas Saenger. It uses abstract shapes to depict a “cabin between heaven and earth. The third, located in Ste-Cath Alley, is by Peru Dyer. It incorporates wooden structures and living plants to “call for compassion, empathy and solidarity for all people.”

“Art brings new light to forgotten alleyways,” said Yves Lalumière, president and CEO of Tourisme Montréal. “This embellishment project improves the feeling of safety and the cleanliness index of the destination. These creations are concrete examples of our desire to enhance the city in a sustainable way.”
