Bleu de Bleu: Art on arrival
With Bleu de Bleu, an art work by international-known artist Alain Paiement, Montréal says “art” from the word go. Montréal is a city filled with public art and street happenings year-round, and now that starts from the moment you land at Pierre-Elliot Trudeau International Airport.
Presented by National Bank, Bleu de Bleu is an ambitious project that required a year’s research in feasibility and represents an investment of $3.2 million in private donations from the local business community. Pierre-Elliot Trudeau International Airport is already an art-filled experience, with works by Québec artists both famous and undiscovered adorning the walls of the arrivals corridor. Now, the experience continues all the way downtown.
