Residents on the west side of Lowertown have an interactive art work in their sights 24-7. The colour and brilliance of the spires of Notre-Dame Cathedral transform continuously. On bright summer days, they reflect blindingly white rays. They turn peach at sunrise and mauve at sunset. They're often sterling silver or steel grey. Rarely, they appear green--which they were for a fleeting few minutes this morning. And, at dusk, we often enjoy this wondrous sight--the interior of the spires alight in gold.
Lowertown residents and visitors have been experiencing this artwork for over 150 years, a thought that is truly awesome.
