Illuminated Crowd information
Constructed of polyester resin, Raymond Mason’s sculpture of 65 people is one of Montréal’s most photographed pieces of public art. The work shows a rather dark side of humanity. A crowd of onlookers stands pressed tightly together. The first row merely looks off into the distance, while behind them, the mood gradually degenerates as figures show a range of emotions – melancholy, fear, lust, hatred and terror.
A fine vantage point is on the 'Secret Bench', an evocative sculpture by Lea Vivot on the other side of Rue McGill.
