Heart, Culture and Pedagogy

Coeur, culture et pédagogie - Murales Sherbrooke
The mural Heart, Culture and Pedagogy harks back to the trompe-l’œil style of 17th century master painters such as Cornelis Norbertus Gijsbrechts (1630–1675) and Giuseppe Maria Crespi (1665–1747). The mural is a nod to the history of this neighbourhood vibrant with culture, literature and knowledge. Several of the objects in the mural evoke the local Lomas, Paton and Kayser factories.

The upper stories of the Collège Sacré-Cœur building have been replaced with the levels of a bookcase housing tiny characters, who are seen standing or sitting against a backdrop of giant books. The mural is an allegory of Sherbrooke as a cradle of knowledge, and stands as a metaphor of our literary world, representing more than 100 authors from the Eastern Townships.

Dimensions : 39 by 42 feet
Year created : 2011

Petroglyph
In the fall of 1963, Jean-Marc and Philippe Forest came across an assemblage of petroglyphs in a rocky outcropping of the Saint-François River in Bromptonville.

After being retrieved from the river in 1965, the stones were brought to the Bromptonville town hall. In November of 1976, the City of Bromptonville turned the stones over to the former Sherbrooke Seminary Museum.

The glyphs are made up of various markings (initials, names, dates, anthropomorphic-zoomorphic motifs, etc.) and abstract symbols. The provenance of the petroglyphs is likely mixed, coming from both Native and other communities. They are thought to date from between 1740 and 1815, although this is only an estimate. Archaeologists believe that the petroglyphs were left behind by travellers passing through the area.
