After the announcement of this year's Metro Challenge, we thought it would be a good opportunity to get together for lunch and spend an afternoon discussing art, architecture and quilt design!
We will be meeting for lunch at the Centre Eaton food court (705 Rue St. Catherine Ouest, Montreal, Quebec H3B 4G5, metro station McGill) at 12:00pm on Saturday November 5th. From there we will explore a handful of Montreal's metro stations along the Green and Orange line, discuss a little of their history explore their architecture and art works, as well as a bit of their surrounding neighborhoods.
Please wear comfortable shoes and dress in layers as we will be both inside and outside during our tour. We recommend you bring a notebook and pen as well as a camera. Joanna will be posting instructions on how to make a simple viewfinder so you can make one to bring along as well.
If you do not already have a monthly pass for the STM, you can purchase a 1 Day Pass for $10 (http://www.stm.info/en/info/fares/transit-fares/1-day) that will allow you unlimited access for 24 hours. Since we will be going in and out of some of the stations on our route, this will save you some time and money.
If you will be joining us for the tour, please indicate your presence in the comments below, or on the Facebook event so that we have an idea of how many we will be. If you cannot make it on Saturday, we will be posting a summary of the tour to the blog afterwards, and you can also find some great information and photos on the STM site: Art in the metro.
Hope to see you there!
