In 2017 Canada celebrated 150 years of Confederation. Living in the capital city afforded many unique free events. This best of 2017 showcases Mosaiculture Canada 150 which reflects 150 years of history, values, culture and arts in Canada using many types of living plants. The exhibition was located in Jacques Cartier Park in Gatineau Québec just across the Ottawa River from the Parliament buildings.

The scene opens looking towards Mother Natures right hand with an eagle and falling water. Mother Earth next we see her left hand extended for some deer. In the distance there are wild horses running past a heard of buffalo. Next we see Wisakedjak showing the Algonquin Anishinabeg story of the creation of the world. Note the similarity between this Aboriginal legend and that of Noah and his ark in Christian, Jewish and Islamic legends.

Beyond the trees there are 40 more living creations showcasing Canada’s diverse pluralistic society living in 10 provinces and 3 territories using living plants with colourful foliage.
About Mosaiculture a spectacular horticultural technique that combines these art forms.

• horticulture as the means of creating living and changing artworks with plants

• sculpture for the structures

• paint for the palette of colours

Mosaiculture is a refined horticultural art that involves creating and mounting living artworks made primarily from plants with colourful foliage (generally annuals, and occasionally perennials). The colourful two- and three-dimensional drawings, designs, sculptures and reliefs thus created employ a wide variety of flora. This multifaceted and complex discipline, an ornamental art, draws on numerous practices: on sculpture for its structure and volume, on painting for its palette, and on horticulture in its use of plants in a living, constantly changing environment. Mosaiculture should be distinguished from topiary, which features mostly shrubs pruned to create different shapes.
