Art at 6600

Through citizen participation, and in collaboration with MASSIVart, Montreal artists’ new creations will emerge during summer 2021 at 6600 Saint-Urbain.

Show your colours

The 6600 Saint-Urbain building has been a part of the Mile-Ex neighbourhood for more than half a century.

Art installation at
6600 Saint-Urbain

We asked the community to share their views on public art in the area. Montreal artists took that feedback and got to work. The result? Three exciting mural proposals to choose from!

Your choice

From June 22 to July 08, 2021, the community voted on the preferred art installation proposal for the 6600 Saint-Urbain building, located at the corner of rue Beaubien. Three proposals. Two walls @ the 6600. Only one [difficult!] choice was possible.

Congratulations to artist Izabelle Duguay!

The ÉMERGENCES project will burst to life, during summer 2021, on 6600 Saint-Urbain’s walls.

ABOUT Izabelle

With a bachelor’s degree in this discipline, she has always been interested in artworks’ scale, the power of colours and the connection between natural and urban forms. Izabelle has been an artist and educator at MU since 2013. In 2016, she designed and realized the mural Hommage à la collection permanente at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts.
