Discover Public Art

All year

The Portrait Sonore organization, in collaboration with the Société du parc Jean-Drapeau, is presenting a new walking tour-documentary, Parc Jean-Drapeau/Public art, a two-hour stroll. A true "pocket report" with sound and music, that puts you in the midst of Parc Jean-Drapeau to discover 15 public art works spread out along St-Hélène and Notre-Dame islands.

  • Many eyewitnesses, creators and experts explain the issues surrounding the conservation of the works, the values that led to their design, and the spirit of an era: a time when art became accessible to all.
  • 15 musicians from Québec's local music scene each provide their own musical interpretation of an art work. The result is 15 original compositions that hone our senses and inject new life into these works, in a very personal manner; an eclectic and enlightened selection directed by composer Antoine DJ Champion and Diane Labrosse.

Available for free through iOS and Androïd and the website of Portrait sonore.
