Monument sights in Montréal
- Sort by:
The Illuminated Crowd is one of Montréal’s most talked-about sculptures and arguably its most photographed piece of public art. The inscription reads in part: ‘A crowd has gathered…the strong light casts shadows, and as light moves toward the back and diminishes, the mood degenerates; hooliganism, disorder and violence occur.’ The group placed on four giant steps ranges from wide-eyed, upstanding citizens in the front to miscreants in the rear as the steps descend downwards. They’re made of polyester resin with a vanilla-yellow coating.
