PUBLIC WINNIPEG ART: STOP #1
Monument @ La Maison des artistes visuels francophones
Underneath their granite veils, two anonymous figures stand hauntingly in the Jardins des sculptures on the lawn of La Maison des artistes visuels francophones. Eschewing classical sculpture rules, Monument artist Michel de Broin shrouds the identity of these figures. This artistic rule-breaking plays on the old-versus-new theme inherent in Winnipeg’s French Quarter. Visitors can find other works about a block and a half east of the Provencher Bridge. The newly developed sculpture garden at this artist’s centre houses permanent and temporary pieces for contemporary tastes.
