Viaduct 375 – Interactive Installations on Van Horne Viaduct
Viaduct 375 – The Van Horn Viaduct is undergoing a complete artistic transformation this Fall. In honour of Montreal’s 375th, artists from across the city have gathered together to participate in temporarily bringing the viaduct to life for pedestrians. From October 3rd until October 8th 2017, pedestrians will be able to cross the bridge between Rosemont and the Mile End and learn about the history of the districts.
The entire temporary pedestrian sidewalk has been created by the artists at Bellastock Quebec. Installations on the viaduct include interactive games, a festive terrace, ways to discover the city, a photo exposition of the railway system by Clayton Bailey. There will also be architectural pieces representing both the district of Rosemont and the Mile End.
On October 5th, there will the official opening party of this unique urban experience. You’ll be able to listen to local DJ Gayance while sipping on locally brewed beers and organic wine by Manitoba Restaurant. A guided tour will be offered if you want to learn about the city. From 6pm until 6.30pm, join the tour about Mile End and the history of Rosemont at the top of the viaduct. The tour is completely FREE and will start at the entrance of the viaduct near St-Denis street.
