A workshop inspired by the sculpture Les ombres claires

The Stewart Hall Cultural Centre’s Mediation Department organized an art workshop related to the Les ombres claires (Clear Shadows) André Dubois’s public artwork. Created as part of the Geopoetics project which celebrates the 150th anniversary of Canadian Confederation and inaugurated during the vernissage held June 11, this sculpture is made up of various symbolic shapes representing specific features of the region, and more broadly, those of Canada.

Offered to the general public during the Valois Fair that was held in Valois Park on Thursday, July 13, then during the Pique-Nique Collective event that was held in Stewart Park on Sunday, July 16, this workshop brought together more than 120 participants, of all ages, who were invited to create their own shapes inspired by nature in the style of artist André Dubois. These shapes were then assembled in order to make up a collective and community banner which will be displayed on the 2nd floor of the Stewart Hall Cultural Centre all summer long.
