Plan your trip and avoid unpleasant surprises by consulting often the important notices or the schedule of activities and events that are of interest to you.

Parc Jean-Drapeau
Iris

The Iris sculpture was done in 1967 by Québec artist Raoul Hunter in conjunction with Expo 67, the world's fair.

The work consists of four curved elements made from pre-cut aluminium sheets. All of the concave surfaces converge towards each other, producing an enveloping effect.

In May, 2012, the work was restored and reinstalled at Parc Jean-Drapeau by the City of Montréal.
