Quebec City public art on show until mid-October

Quebec City (Quebec) – They call it ‘PUBLIC ART’.

If you’re walking around lower town these days you’ll be running into some art forms which are referred to as Public Art, or Urban Art.

This basically means using urban landscapes or fixtures to install other mediums other than stone and brick etc. You’ll find them in places where they don’t always belong but can make a significant statement if placed properly and in strategic settings.

Such is the case for these interesting works of art set up around Place Royale, and the Vieux Port entitled, “Les Passages Insolites” set up by a group of artists under the name of Exmuro. The artwork is on display until October 18 and can be found sporadically dispersed in and around the older lower town.

Have a look around the areas of rue Petit Champlain, rue St Paul and Place Royale. Keep your eyes peeled because some of them are high up or hidden in back alleys.

Have you managed to go see them yet?

Be quick, they’ll be gone before you know it.
