Mosaï­cul­ture

JuNE 30 to OCT. 15

Where Ottawa - - HERE & NOW -

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.
