Event: Why do we need public art in the city?
Organizer: Héritage Montréal
Date: 22 January 2014
Presentation: Heritage Montreal proposes a discussion on public art, more specifically on the contribution of works of art to public spaces. Well-established in the urban landscape, works of public art are symbols that have inhabited the daily lives of Montrealers for generations. They are part of the public space, which raises questions about their relevance. Are they meaningful and inspirational for citizens? What role do they play in building the city's identity?
