Place des Arts in downtown Montreal, even on a cool April day like today is fun. There is always something happening here. This is the arts center of Montreal. The Salle Wifrid-Pelletier, one of the venues that houses the performing arts/music/opera events, is the building on the left. The Musee d'Art Contemporain de Montreal that has all the funky and interesting art work is on the right. The building in the middle of the photo is the Complexe Desjardins (hotel and shopping). Note the stylish lighting structures that line the walkway, looking like dancing figures in celebration. Only in Montreal, my hometown !
