This mural is part of a project to beautify the downtown area, in collaboration with Tourisme Montréal. Combining public art with plants, this project aims to encourage the general public to see and appropriate the alleys in a different way in order to make them spontaneous meeting places in the heart of the metropolis.
The work was created by artist and art educator Diane Roe. Landscape in abstraction, it is composed of silhouettes of landscapes found on the banks of the river that runs along the 132. It is a daily reminder to passersby of the flora and fauna that exists in Quebec, which we must celebrate and protect. The delicacy of the origami flowers reminds us of the beauty and fragility of our country.
