Since 2015, the public space of Rouyn-Noranda has been enriched by more and more works of art. Whether they are municipal or private initiatives, sculptures, murals or bas-reliefs, their presence enriches the living spaces and takes over the streets and lanes to add a remarkable dose of meaning and beauty.
The tour proposed here is an overview of 19 of these works created by different artists, the majority living in Rouyn-Noranda or in Abitibi-Témiscamingue. They have been selected to offer visitors a variety of proposals with decisively contemporary and daring aesthetics.
The curious visitor, by opening his eyes, will see on his way other works of art that unfold in the decor and that are worth discovering. Public art is a contagious effect. It’s surprising or mysterious, it multiplies with the seasons, but above all, it is generous. It’s up to you to discover it!
