Admission to the MOSAÏCANADA 150/Gatineau 2017 exhibit in Jacques-Cartier Park will be free. The exhibit will be in the form of a route extending over almost one kilometre. Each visit will last approximately 90 minutes.
An Outdoor Land Art Exhibition
Beyond the Edge: Artists’ Gardens was first presented in 2014. The exhibition explored the notion of a rural oasis in the heart of an urban centre. In 2016, Canadensis Botanical Garden Society partnered with the Canada Council Art Bank to present outdoor works by a group of artists who created installations in response to three outdoor sculptures on loan from the Art Bank collection. This year, three new installations have been added to the site for a total of 6 unique experiences.
Exhibition continues until September 17, 2017
Open Daily – Free Admission – Parking available nearby
