The given theme for all the artistic projects at the Habitations Jeanne-Mance was “nature and vegetation”. This artistic guideline was developed with the collaboration of the Corporation d’habitation Jeanne-Mance as part of a global improvement plan that aims to position the complex as the green heart of the downtown area. This first mural of the serie Les saisons montréalaises (The Montreal Seasons) depicts a contemporary landscape highlighting the beautiful autumn colors. Horizontal lines cut across thie 1400 square feet mural, giving the illusion of velocity, a nod to the speeding car and bicycle traffic on De Maisonneuve Boulevard. A few of the residents of the Habitations Jeanne-Mance are depicted at the heart of the mural.
Corinne Lachance and Caroline Simard, both art students, assisted the artists throughout the completion of the mural.
