Art in many shapes & spaces.

These sculptures are in the Monk Metro Station in Montreal.

Some of the Metro (subway) stations in Montreal are works of art in themselves, albeit old works of art!  The Metro was inaugurated in 1966, and as a young girl, I seem to remember that it was built in anticipation of hosting EXPO 67 (Canada's centennial celebration) in that city.  The Metro started out with 26 stations and now has 68.  It connects all parts of the city, including lines going under the St. Lawrence River to the northern suburb of Laval (Montreal's largest suburb) and to Longueuil in the south.
