If you prefer to explore an area by walking, Little Burgundy is the place. There are the streets of Notre-Dame and Saint-Jacques, Atwater Avenue or the small streets Payette and William which host the largest number of galleries and artists’ studios.

Take a détour on l’Arsenal, located in an 80,000 square foot building erected in 1853 by Charles-Auguste Cantin for Montreal Marine Works. The latter produced steamboats for nearly a hundred years before closing its doors. In 2011, Arsenal took possession of the building and transformed its large rooms by interfering as little as possible with the original industrial style. Arsenal has today become a must-see venue for artists from all over the world.

Little Burgundy also hosts murals like :

  • Thr hydro-electric post Guy, on St-Jacques Street, not far from Guy Street. At the request of Hydro-Québec, the Montreal artist Roadsworth, an expert in urban art, created a mural in bright colours. A tribute to the neighbourhood and its rich social and cultural heritage, the work was designed to contribute to the beautification of the neighbourhood and to the place, originally industrial.

  • The mural in honor of Oscar Peterson, a famous Montreal jazz pianist who died in 2007. Covering an area of 88 square meters, the work signed by the visual artist Gene Pendon with the collaboration of his assistants Nicolas Craig and Arly Padan is located at the corner of the streets of Lords and St-Jacques..

The social and cultural heritage of the district is reflected in the works demonstrating that the marriage between art and history lasts.
