Michele posted about this project a few weeks ago, and now I'm happy to let you know about the official opening of the "Piste cyclable en oeuvre". Fifty-four artists of the region were chosen to make a piece that was then photographed and printed on a six-foot tall banner. These vinyl banners will be hung as kilometre markers all along the Soulanges bike path: fifty-four banners, back-to-back, and twenty-seven lamp posts.

About 100,000 visitors cycle, walk and roller-blade the path every year, and these banners will be installed for four years. The promoters say this is Canada's largest outdoor art display.
The original works of art will be displayed in different venues around the county all summer. The vernissage is on Friday, May 3, 6 - 10 p.m. at Pavillon Wilson, 48 rue Principale, Coteau-du-Lac, and you are invited! The gallery show continues until August 28.
