PowerPoint Presentations


Graffiti and Street-Art are increasingly regarded, in many quarters, as a welcomed and vital wave of artistic expression. It is also considered by many city administrations world-wide, as a desirable form of beautification of the urban scape.

My 45-minute PowerPoint slideshow and talk that focuses on Montreal’s Street art has great eye appeal, is wonderfully entertaining and is above all informative. The show includes more than 200 images drawn from my extensive portfolio. I accompany these photographs with detailed commentary that addresses the origin and evolution of street art and elaborates on the varied characteristics of this popular art form. Everything you wanted to know about this ubiquitous art form but did not know what or who to ask.

The shows are available in English, French or a combination of the two and include a question-and-answer session and discussion. The subject has wide appeal and I have presented at public libraries, schools, and community and cultural organizations both on site and, during the pandemic, on the Zoom platform. These slide shows have engaged audiences at many venues including  the Atwater Library, the Côte Saint-Luc Men's Club, the Liberal Arts College of Concordia University, the Côte Saint-Luc Library, La Bibliothèque de Pointe-aux-Trembles, the Women's Canadian Club of Montreal, The Dollard-des-Ormeaux Library, The Town of Mount Royal Library,

and the Pierrefonds Library.

Le graffiti et le street-art sont de plus en plus considérés, dans de nombreux quartiers, comme une vague d’expression artistique bienvenue et vitale. Il est également considéré par de nombreuses administrations urbaines dans le monde entier, comme une forme souhaitable d’embellissement du paysage urbain.

Mon diaporama PowerPoint de 45 minutes et mon exposé axé sur l’art de rue à Montréal ont un grand attrait visuel, sont merveilleusement divertissants et surtout instructifs. La présentation comprende plus de 200 images tirées de mon vaste portfolio. J’accompagne ces photographies de commentaires détaillés qui abordent l’origine et l’évolution du street art et jélabore sur les caractéristiques variées de cette forme d’art populaire. Tout ce que vous vouliez savoir sur cette forme d’art omniprésente, mais ne savait pas quoi ou qui demander.

Les diaporamas sont disponibles en Anglais, Français ou une combinaison des deux et comprennent une séance de questions-réponses et de discussion. Le sujet a un large attrait et j’ai présenté dans les bibliothèques publiques, les écoles et les organismes communautaires et culturels à la fois sur place et, pendant la pandémie, sur la plate-forme Zoom. Ces diaporamas ont mobilisé le public dans de nombreux lieux, dont la Bibliothèque Atwater, le Club des hommes Côte Saint-Luc, le Collège des études Humanistes de l'Université Concordia, La Bibliothèque de Pointe-aux-Trembles et le Club canadien féminin de Montréal, La Bibliotèque de La Ville de Mont-Royal, La Bibliotèque de Dolard-des-Ormeaux et La Bibliotèque dePierrefonds.

Thank you again for the splendid presentation you delivered . . . describing Montreal's Street Art Gallery . . .Your research into Montreal's unique artistic works and graffiti is impressive and the explanations and observations you made during the presentation were exemplary.

“Fineberg explored the city of Montreal end to end for his book, which documents the ephemeral art that decorates the sides of our buildings, crumbling walls and overpasses.”

Julie Anne Pattee, The Montreal Gazette, Aug 25 2017
