50 years of public art

Concordia’s public art collection was brought to life over 50 years ago with the integration of painted glass windows by Jean McEwen into the newly built Henry F. Hall building at Sir George Williams University, one of Concordia’s founding institutions. 

Today the collection features over 40 artists and is presented across Concordia’s two campuses on building facades, city sidewalks, tunnels and atria.

This website brings together the artworks from both campuses and provides an entry point of discovery. We invite you to use this website as a guide when visiting in person. The collection is open to the public year-round.

Territorial acknowledgement

Concordia University is located on unceded Indigenous lands. The Kanien’kehá:ka Nation is recognized as the custodians of the lands and waters on which we gather today. Tiohtià:ke/Montreal is historically known as a gathering place for many First Nations. Today, it is home to a diverse population of Indigenous and other peoples. We respect the continued connections with the past, present and future in our ongoing relationships with Indigenous and other peoples within the Montreal community.
