Project 365 – Day 323: Quai des Arts mural at L’ESPACE GO Theatre
November 18 2012
I’ve been meaning to shoot the great mural at the loading dock of the Théâtre ESPACE GO on blvd Saint-Laurent for a while. Since I was passing by today, it seemed like a good subject for today’s pic.
The mural was commissioned by the Theatre as a way to prevent the dock area from being constantly bombed with Graffiti. They called on MU (a nonprofit promoting public art in Montreal) to produce a mural and the resulting art piece was created. A team of artists collectively known as En Mass worked for 2 days in August 2011 and over a year later the mural remains untouched by graffiti taggers.
The artists: Caro Caron, Zema, Mireille B. Utcher, Krista Bursey, Peru Dyer, flexib, Tyler Rauman, Jason Botkin, Fred Caron and Frank Lam.
As I did with another mural produced by MU on Saint-Denis (Manifeste à Paul-Émile Borduas), I decided to create a collage to show the entire art work. This one was created using 13 images stitched using Photoshop Elements 10.
I came across this video on Vimeo that shows the artists at work.
While crossing avenue du Mont Royal I happened to look up and saw that two plane vapor trails had formed a perfect cross overhead.
