Seven new sculptures will be added to the works already present on the site, amid a newly embellished landscaped area highlighted by a vegetable garden and a labyrinth.

Visitors will be able to admire some 13 major artworks signed by artists from here and beyond, including Armand Vaillancourt, Catherine Sylvain, Glen Lemesurier, Philippe Allard (Canada), Andrew Rogers (Australia), Jim Dine, Tom Doyle (United States), Simon Gudgeon (United Kingdom) and Rolf Knie (Switzerland).

The works will also be featured on the “Art public Montréal” website. The “Cité des arts du Cirque” route will invite visitors to discover the works at Cirque du Soleil, the TOHU, the École Nationale de Cirque and the Saint-Michel Environmental Complex.

Jardin d’œuvres was created with the goal of integrating art into the public space for the benefit of Cirque du Soleil employees and the Saint-Michel community.

This project is being financed by the Cirque du Soleil.
