Mosaicultures Canada 150
Ottawa Gatineau Photographer
On the same day that my daughter and I went to see La Machine, we visited Mosaicultures Canada 150 exhibition in Gatineau, QC. Ever since I heard about the exhibit, I’ve wanted to see the sculptures. The exhibit is at Jaques-Cartier Park (285 Laurier St., Gatineau) until October 15, 2017. The hours are 10:00 am- 7:00 pm. And the best part is that it’s FREE! If you’re in need of some ideas of where to take your family, visit Mosaïcultures. You won’t regret it.
MosaïCanada is the biggest horticultural event in Canada and it’s right here in the Gatineau/Hull area. According to the Gatineau2017 website, the theme of the Gatineau exhibit reflects 150 years of history, values, culture and arts in Canada, represented by 40 different arrangements.
Both my daughter and myself loved all of the beautiful plant sculptures. They are living works of art. The colours and uses of different types of flowers and grasses were executed beautifully. I mean, grass was used to make animal fur and hair! How cool is that?!?!? I was totally blown away by the workmanship of these horticulture sculptures. I’m so thankful that I brought my camera with me to take some photos of some of the exhibits. Here’s just a few photos of some of the 30+ sculptures on display.
My favourite displays were: Anne of Green Gables, complete with a train station and train! I also loved the Chinese displays, the Inukshuk, the bison. Finally, the pièce de résistance, Mother Earth was as beautiful as what I had seen in photos.

In conclusion, I highly recommend for anyone in the Ottawa/Gatineau region, as well as tourists, to make a stop to visit this exhibit. You won’t regret it. And most of all, it will be a wonderful memory of Canada’s 150th year. You can find more info about MosaïCanada by visiting their website.
