Two articles on Public Art


Last week it seemed like forgotten public art was all the rage. Both François Cardinal in La Presse and Emmanuel Delacour from QMI wrote articles about Fonte modulaire by Robert Roussil and Iris by Raoul Hunter respectively.

If anyone is looking for other forgotten public art that has fallen into disrepair. I got a short list: Mastodo by Charles Daudelin, Forces by Claude Theberge, Jackie Robinson by Jules Lasalle, Comme si le temps… de la rue by Pierre Granche, Stained Glass by Alfred Pellan at the Bar Pellan in Place des Arts, Girafes by Robert Roussil, Affinité by Hans Schleeh, Trialogue by Hans Schleeh, Trente Deux Fois Passera La Derniere S’Envolera by Pierre Granche.

Éolienne V by Charles Daudelin


I’m not sure whether the word Éolienne translates into English as windmill, windturbine or fan, although my best guess would be some combination of all three. Initially built in 1983, it was restored in 2003, which was when Soucy Aquatik added the water to it. More details can be had here.
