In 1966, just before Montreal hosted its World’s Fair, Mayor Jean Drapeau ordered that art should be integrated into all the stations of the new metro. Today there are more than 150 sculptures, murals, and mosaics featured throughout the system. The abstract stained-glass window shown here, designed by Mario Merola and Pierre Osterrath, brightens up rush hour for Montreal commuters at Charlevoix Station.
