Art in the Streets

As spotted on a recent trip, art seems to be taking over Montreal – at least for the summer. Last week, the Festival International Montréal en Arts, an annual event with exhibitions, programs, and a street lined with an artist’s market, took over Ste Catherine Street. Landscape architect Claude Cormier created a beautiful canopy of strung resin balls in varying shades of pink, covering the length of the street (some nice installation shots here). Meanwhile, at Fonderie Darling, an artist’s residency program, artists Philippe Allard and Justin Duchesneau created a milk-crate quilt sheathing the building’s facade.
