Montreal's famous MURAL Festival is well underway across the city, and loads of popular art installations have been popping up left and right. MURAL organizers have unveiled a number of eyebrow-raising festival highlights, including a huge fresco painting by artist Saype on a grassy bit of land at the northeast corner of Mount Royal Park.

The "Beyond Walls" art piece depicts two interlocking human arms, which will only be visible at the park for a "few days." MURAL said Saype's work "stems from a desire to share a positive message of solidarity and collective effort around the world by symbolically creating the largest human chain ever realized."

Hundreds of police officers will take to downtown Montreal during the 15th United Nations Conférence des parties (COP15). The event, also known as the 2022 Montreal Biodiversity Conference, will take place at the Palais des Congrès from December 7 to 19. A police perimeter around the convention centre is set to disrupt movement through the area. The STM is planning several service changes as a result, including the temporary closure of Place d'Armes metro station.

In a Friday statement, the transit company said the stop will be closed from December 1 to 20 at the request of the authorities. The orange line will otherwise run as usual, just without a stop between Square-Victoria–OACI and Champs-de-Mars.

MTL Blog publishes Opinion content as part of our ongoing, not-so-secret plot to take over Montreal’s digital media landscape. We believe putting Gen Z and Millennial voices front and center is a crucial way to connect with our city, and we’re excited to deliver fascinating, authentically diverse stories to Montrealers.

Why Does MTL Blog Publish Opinion Content?

We want to be the primary source for news and views that amplify the lives, loves, concerns and discussions that are most important to our Gen Z and Millennial readers. We recognize that authenticity is key, and the best way to allow our diverse readership to have a voice is to actually give them a platform to be heard. We’re opening MTL Blog up to the lived experiences of smart, cosmopolitan writers, both within and outside of our company. You can expect to live vicariously through the first-person narratives of MTL Blog staff as well as talented freelance writers with something important to say.
