Although perhaps best known for its circuit of murals portraying scenes for the city’s past, Sherbrooke is host to a wide range of outdoor sculpture and paintings. Lovers of public art will be pleased to know that The city’s collection is expanding this summer, with new works having recently unveiled and more on the way.
In late June two new murals were inaugurated in the city on the same day. The first, in the Borough of Brompton, is a ten by fifteen foot frame on the side of the borough office wall depicting scenes from the history of the community. See full story in the Wednesday, July 4 edition of The Record.
