MosaïCanada150 invites visitors to step into an exciting and imaginary world at Jacques‑Cartier Park, in Gatineau.
The colourful exhibit, which is on display for free until October 15, 2017 for Canada 150, offers a wide variety of creative sculptures to reflect 150 years of history, values, culture and arts in Canada.
Mosaiculture is a spectacular horticultural technique that pulls together different art forms, including sculpture for its structure, painting for its range of colours and horticulture to express the vibrant and changing world of plants. The exhibit consists of a nearly one-kilometer trail that is sure to enchant visitors. The visit lasts around 90 minutes.
The Government of Canada funded this project through the Canada 150 Fund. This fund supports local, regional and national activities that allow Canadians from coast to coast to coast to celebrate Canada 150 and make 2017 a year to remember.
