From June 25 to September 6, 2021
Every day at 2 p.m.

Every day during the summer, visit the Riverfront Park at 2 p.m. and listen to this audio work of art designed to broadcast “messages to the sea” left by visitors to the Museum over the years!

An exhibition of messages to the sea

This summer, discover Messagealamer, the material and audio work of art designed by sculptor and seaman Pierre Bourgault. Locate the giant loudspeaker in the Riverfront Park and lend an ear to the “messages to the sea” chosen from among over 3500 messages left by visitors to the Museum. As part of the Sea Roots exhibition, the artwork installed outside in the Riverfront Park blends in with the Museum’s architecture and translates the intimate connection between human beings and the St. Lawrence River.

Would you like to contribute to this collaborative work of art? Write a few words to the St. Lawrence River when you visit the former convent sanctuary in the Museum.  

Performers: Christian Michaud, Peggy Bélanger and Amélie Harvey
