On Thursday, July 9 Pincourt's Design Committee, in the presence of the Pincourt Town Council, unveiled a mural titled ‘Douce rivière’ at the pumping station at the corner of chemin Duhamel and 5th Avenue.

In June 2019, the Design Committee launched a drawing contest to select an image that would grace the 5th Avenue pumping station. The winning design was created by Evelyn Sotosek. It took about 100 volunteer hours to complete the mural. We would like to highlight the participation of Athanasia Antonopoulos, Mélanie Lafrance, Laura Labrosse and Denise Bergeron, all members of the Design Committee, with the help of Erin Wainwright, Kimberly Declercq and Evelyn Sotosek.

This is the fourth mural to be created in Pincourt in four years. The other murals can be seen in Bellevue Park and on Cardinal-Léger Boulevard. The addition of this new mural reflects the growing vitality of culture in Pincourt. Over the past few years, cultural mediation activities and collaborations with amateur and professional artists have gained momentum.

About the Design Committee

The Design Committee was created following the adoption of the Social Development Policy. Its goal is to enhance the town’s appearance by revitalizing its public spaces – in particular underused or abandoned areas – through the integration of public art with the help of the community.
