Sise aux Habitations Jeanne-Mance, la murale produite par MU est la troisième d’une série représentant les quatre éléments. Après un imposant ciel nuageux (L’air du temps, 2012) et le majestueux Fleuve Saint-Laurent (Au fil de l’eau, 2013), c’est l’incontournable Mont-Royal que l’artiste Phillip Adams — en résidence de création aux Habitations Jeanne-Mance pendant la réalisation de l’oeuvre — a choisi d’évoquer pour illustrer la terre.

En 2012, MU s’est mérité le prix provincial Citoyen de la culture 2012 Andrée-Daigle du réseau Les Arts et la ville pour l’ensemble de ses interventions aux Habitations Jeanne-Mance. Depuis 2009, MU a, entre autres, produit une collection de quatre murales (Les Saisons montréalaises) ainsi qu’une murale mosaïque collective. À la suite des retombées positives du projet, la nouvelle collection sur le thème des quatre éléments a été amorcée en 2012.

Located at the Habitations Jeanne-Mance housing project (at the intersection of Ontario E. and Saint-Dominique Streets), the mural, produced by MU, is the third in the series representing the four elements. After an impressive overcast sky (L’air du temps, 2012) and the majestic Saint-Lawrence River (Au fil de l’eau, 2013), artist Philip Adams – who was in creative residency at the Habitations Jeanne-Mance during the creation of the mural – chose Mount Royal to depict the earth. Mural arts and mosaic workshops were also offered to the residents of the Habitations Jeanne-Mance.

Between 2009 and 2012, MU initiated an ambitious public art and cultural mediation project at the Habitations Jeanne-Mance housing project. A series of four murals entitled Les Saisons montréalaises were produced, as were a collective mosaic mural and numerous mosaic projects involving the residents. MU was awarded the provincial citizenship award, Citoyen de la culture Andrée-Daigle, by the Les Arts et la ville network in 2012 for its overall intervention program at the housing project. Given the positive effects of its work, MU initiated another group of murals in 2012, based on the four elements.
