Take part in The Cork Tree at Des Glacis Inn by adding your cork creations to an existing structure. You can develop new segments according to your inspiration of the moment or by sharing your memories of an enjoyable bottle of wine.
The corks and tools will be provided on-site when you register.
After a "call for corks" in the media in the spring of 2015, community members brought thousands of corks to the Auberge des Glacis to be used in an original project: creating a cork tree!
The Inn's owner, Nancy Lemieux, had been playing with the idea of a participatory piece of artwork for several years. She called on sculptor Marie-Claude Hains to help her turn this unique idea into reality!
A permanent sculpture created in harmony with nature will be erected on the Inn's grounds.
The Cork Tree was unveiled on June 21, 2015, and you are now invited to participate in the adventure by letting your imagination run free!
Constant change will make the Cork Tree project truly fascinating! Follow the participatory and community artwork's evolution by "friending" our Facebook page.
