Thursday Doors; May the Force be with you

I bring you a last minute Thursday Doors on Saturday morning, a rare thing for me.

While out on my early morning walk today with my dog, we came upon this freshly painted garage door. I had to share it with you.

Thursday Doors: The Holy Door

I was visiting friends and family in Quebec City last weekend. While walking through the old city with my friend and her son who was acting as our tour guide, he suggested we have a look at the Holy Door on the north side of the Basilica of Notre-Dame de Quebec. “A door!” I said excitedly. So I explained to them the Norm’s 2.0 Thursday Doors challenge.

Well you don’t have to be an observant Christian to appreciate the beauty of this door made of massive bronze. It was gifted by the Vatican to  the Cathedral-Basilica Notre-Dame de Quebec  in 2013 to coincide with celebrations of the church’s 350th anniversary. The Basilica is the  oldest church in North America. This Holy Door is the only one that exist outside of Europe.

You can read more about it here and here.

Thursday Doors: Art Du Commun

Actually bad graffiti is not that uncommon, but if you like murals and street art Montreal will not disappoint you. What we have here, is pretty remarkable. In 2013 Montreal hosted its first festival of public art:  Mural. It was a big success and has been back every summer since. This year it will be held form June 9-19th.

If you look-up www.artducommun.com you will come to the conclusion that they are not responsible for the bad graffiti on their back door.  Artducommun is a collective of professional artists that specializes in murals.

This post is part of the Thursday Doors Challenge, hosted by Norm 2.0.
