February 22, 2010 marked the fiftieth anniversary of the death of Paul-Émile Borduas. To mark the occasion, MU launched a two-phase mural project (2010 and 2011) to highlight Borduas’ important cultural contribution and to revitalize and beautify Place Paul-Émile-Borduas, which was facing graffiti and homelessness problems. There was all the more need for change since it is an entrance to the Grande Bibliothèque, also celebrating its 5th anniversary in 2010.
