The mission of the Yvonne L. Bombardier Cultural Centre
, located in Valcourt in the Eastern Townships, is to democratize the visual arts by making artists (and their fascinating techniques) more accessible to the general public. To that end, every year, the Centre stages between 5-9 exhibitions. The work of the visual artists who are showcased is generally for sale, and visitors have the opportunity to deal with them directly. Admission is free. The Yvonne L. Bombardier Cultural Centre
also highlights the special connection between artist and viewer that typically happens when they meet face to face. In addition to previews for art shows, the Centre organizes “Meet the artist” events that allow visitors to get up close and personal with the creators of the work. During your visit to Valcourt, take the opportunity to stop by the J. Armand Bombardier Museum of Ingenuity to discover this famous Quebec inventor.
