Gotta give props to whoever decided the sheet steel outer wall of a well-worn warehouse on a pier was worthy of a little artistic love. Art can happen anyplace as long as we allow ourselves to let our imaginations roam a little. Clearly, someone did. And despite the obvious effects of sun, wind and countless Montreal winters, thousands of people strolling by a once-derelict stretch of waterfront now have another reason to smile.

Your turn: What's the most surprising place you've found something artistic?

Down a narrow back alley in Toronto near Kensington Market were a row of five or so garage doors. The alley was too narrow for cars and dead ended. The garages were now probably storage. All had different murals on them. Very unexpected.

On the side of a railroad car, sitting on a spur all summer, SpongeBob and Plankton were painted atop the graffiti.
