JuNE 30 to OCT. 15
Mosaïculture is the intersection of tapestry and topiary, the latter of which is the pruning of hedges into recognizable shapes. In other words, it’s all about creating living artwork with plants. For 107 days, Jacques-Cartier Park will host the biggest horticultural event in Canada, with MOSAÏCANADA 150/Gatineau 2017. The free exhibit’s themes will reflect on 150 years of history, values, culture, and arts in Canada through some 40 different organic wonders. Some of the most ambitious plant pieces will depict Anne of Green Gables watching an 80-metre train pull into a station, and various First Nations’ legends brought to life.
