Parc Jean-Drapeau
Phare du Cosmos

Phare du Cosmos

This work by Quebec artist Yves Trudeau, created in 1967, expresses the language and cultural values of the new age of space and electronics.

It served as a visual landmark for all of the visitors to Expo 67. When the exhibition closed, the House of Seagram donated the sculpture to St. Dunstan's University on Prince Edward Island, which in turn gave it to the City of Montreal.

Schedule

All year 6 a.m. to 10 p.m.

Due to enhancement and development work in the south sector of Île Sainte‑Hélène (PAMV), this art work has been temporarily stored on Île Notre‑Dame in the Floralies Gardens. The City of Montréal's Public Art Bureau (BAP) has proceed to the removal of the art piece.

The BAP currently works, in collaboration with the Société du parc Jean‑Drapeau, on a relocation and enhancing plan. The BAP will restore the art piece, in partnership with the artist, before its reinstallation in spring 2019.
