Place-des-Arts is a station on the Green Line of the Montreal Metro in Montreal, Québec, Canada. It is in downtown Montreal in the borough of Ville-Marie. It was inaugurated on October 14, 1966, as part of the original network of the metro.

Designed by David, Boulva, & Cleve, it is a normal side-platform station built in open cut under boul. De Maisonneuve, with two ticket halls joined by corridors that surround and overlook the platforms. The eastern mezzanine includes staircases with one-way exit-only turnstiles. The station is joined by underground city to Place des Arts and UQAM, and has a further four street-level exits.

The station features art by Frédéric Back: a massive stained glass mural entitled L'histoire de la musique à Montréal ("history of music in Montreal"). Unveiled on December 20, 1967, this stained glass was the first work of art to be commissioned for the Montreal metro system.

Origin of the nameEdit

This station is named for the Place des Arts cultural complex. Opened in 1963, this complex includes five concert halls, including the largest multipurpose concert hall in Canada, and an art museum.
