MU, the borough of Villeray-Saint-Michel-Parc-Extension and the City of Montreal partnered to create this giant mural, located in the heart of the new Dickie-Moore Park. It was created by well-known Montreal artist Carlito Dalceggio. This work of art, more than 350 feet long, is the backdrop to the new developments of an elegant new park and helps transform the neighbourhood into a dynamic, open and eclectic living environment, promoting social mixing and integration with the surrounding neighbourhood.
This new project also marks the 15th anniversary of MU and its collaboration with the borough of Villeray-Saint-Michel-Parc-Extension, where the organization’s history began. This brand new mural thus becomes the 22nd MU mural in this sector, whose theme is “the meeting of cultures”.
“Three moons ago, I dreamed that I was walking through the valley of research. An imaginary valley that is so mysterious and beautiful, intertwined with long architectural staircases and giant shells, free creatures, between human and animal; spirits that materialize to become visible. From this dream, this mural is the culmination in color of a great journey towards our unknown invisible” explains the artist Carlito Dalceggio.
This project was made possible thanks to the financial support of the Government of Quebec through the City of Montreal’s Mural Art Program.
