These giant lampshades, covered with works of art by Alfred Pellan, brighten up cold winter nights on Avenue Cartier.

In the heart of the Quartier des arts, Avenue Cartier is aglow every evening with the light from 17 pairs of giant lamps. Thirty-four works of art now illuminate the full length of Avenue Cartier from Grande Allée to Chemin Sainte-Foy. Switched on for the first time last Friday evening, the lights will remain on until mid-March or later.
