Culture

    Publiqu’Art

    A veritable open-air museum, Rivière-du-Loup exhibits some forty works of art outdoors. Driving down a street, strolling through the heart of a neighbourhood or entering a park, you will come face to face with these monumental sculptures that reflect the vitality of the local arts community and make modern art accessible to a broader audience.

    The Publiqu'Art itinerary, which will soon celebrate 10 years, consists primarily of works from the Musée du Bas-Saint-Laurent collection.

    The museum’s website contains a description of each work. If you would like to take this walking tour, podcast capsules are also available.

    Espace Bon-Pasteur

    Designed as a work of art, this commemorative park honours the Sisters of Bon-Pasteur, who taught thousands of city residents in the old convent on du Rocher Street, now known as the Maison de la culture.

    Artist André Du Bois has structured choreography around an imposing linear sculpture, that accompanies visitors through its enigmatic presence. A bell, symbol of schools of another era, is included, offering a break for those with a sense of adventure. At night, illuminated points mark an ethereal trail along which aphorisms encourage reflection.
