Aurores Montréal

Until January 1, 2017, Mount Royal will be the site of the Aurores Montréal projection, the stunning lighting design created by Marc Séguin for Montréal's 375th. The internationally-acclaimed artist, considered a leader on Québec's contemporary art scene, has teamed up with the multimedia company 4U2C in order to offer Montrealers and everyone who loves Montréal a one-of-a-kind experience.

Illumination of Montréal's iconic structures and buildings

The Biosphère will be lit up for over 20 years thanks to new structural lighting that will highlight its impressive architectural qualities. It will be enhanced by slow changes in colour and intensity, allowing the sphere to transform continuously. A work of art by Yves Aucoin and 4U2C.

Illumination of the Olympic Tower, Saint Joseph's Oratory and several other downtown Montréal buildings.
