My Mural @ The Port of Montreal

This is my latest mural.

I’m painting “5 stories up” at the Old Port of Montreal. I chose black-on-black & gold for this piece.

The Port of Montreal is a port and transhipment point on the St. Lawrence River. It’s an international container port that services Toronto, Central Canada, the U.S. Midwest and the U.S. Northeast. It handles more than 2,000 ships and over 28 million tones of material per year. Montreal also welcomes cruise ships.

The Port of Montreal originated in the historic area now known as the Old Port of Montreal and over the years expanded eastward.  In 1978, the Port of Montreal ceded the area of the Old Port to the Old Port Corporation, a public corporation responsible for developing tourism and recreational activities in the area. The site is now a cultural gem and a major tourist attraction. It has  museums, restaurants, shops and water-related activities.
