Artwork at Campus Saint-Jean

As a hub of community and cultural life, Campus Saint-Jean is home to a number of artworks that are not only an artistic expression but also a reflection of the diversity of the Campus.


Two works by Saskatchewan Métis artist Leah Dorion, acquired by Campus Saint-Jean, are displayed on the walls of Bibliothèque Saint-Jean.

These paintings were the subject of a study of the symbolic art and epistemology of the Métis woman by Campus students, who selected and studied them. These students were asked to de-center themselves to critically reflect on engagement and theory in relation to practice.

Two works by artist Stewart Steinhauer are located in the East Campus gardens: Mother Bears Pray for Earth Healing and Spirit Bear

The sculpture "Trinity" by artist Patrick Jacob is installed at the entrance of the Pavillon McMahon. This sculpture was created in memory of the victims of the feminicide at the Ecole Polytechnique de Montréal on December 6, 1989.
