Graffiti in the Plateau - Photo and art walk

Graffiti has given the plateau it's own very unique vibe with art that just keeps getting better and better.

Let's get together and move through the plateau to understand the graffiti and analyze it from a compositional standpoint! Feel free to take some artistic pictures while you're at it.

We will try to get a tour-guide in which case there will most certainly be a charge (We assume it will be about $10). 

For those interested, let's grab a meal after!

Mosaics, frescoes, bronze and marble statues, decorative art objects, as well as utensils and personal accessories, will bring to life this small provincial colony of the Roman Empire that was frozen in time by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 A.D. The largest exhibition on Pompeii ever presented in Quebec, it drew 273,000 visitors during its presentation in Toronto in 2015."
