Montreal: sights

by | Jun 4, 2013 | Art, International Travel

Though our time in Montreal was rather brief we still managed to walk around an interesting cross-section of the city. Below are some of our favorite sights.

we saw curving stairs like these all over the city; winter warnings

Art installations

Montreal seems to teem with art, combining a mix of sponsored art in the form of sculptures and installations in addition to street art (see next post). Some of our favorites:

video display
musicians on a building

video installation
video installation under the Place des Arts

Les Chuchoteuses
