Splendid colorful work, drawn on the wall of an alley, the work of Borrris is a great initiative of MU in collaboration with the City, Tourisme Montréal and the organization Montréal Centre-Ville with the aim of restoring our alleys often disfigured by the consequences of commercial activities and a certain sloppiness.

Largest mural of MU’s final season (350 feet), the artwork is at the heart of the new Dickie-Moore Park. “Three moons ago I dreamed that I was walking through the Valley of Seeking. An imaginary and so mysterious and beautiful valley, intertwined with long architectural stairs and giant shells, free creatures, between human and animal; spirits that materialize to become visible. From this dream, this mural is the culmination in color of a great journey towards our invisible unknown,” says its author, Carlito Dalceggio.
Produced in tribute to the conductor of the Orchester métropolitain by MC Baldassari, this mural is located in the heart of Ahuntsic-Cartierville, where Yannick Nézet-Séguin was born. It highlights the universe of this exceptional cultural builder: playful, creative, energetic and organized at the same time. “Through his posture, you feel his calm, his emotion, but also his know-how and his intensity. Straight from his heart, a colorful wave depicts a different and contemporary representation of classical music,” says MU.
