Il y a un nouveau voisin dans l'Est!
Together with Rues principales and members of the Fleurimont community, in 2021 artist Sandra Tremblay unveiled a new lantern-sculpture that found itself a new home at La Placette, on Rue King Est.
Like the people of Sherbrooke, the bird-lantern at Placette King Est is welcoming, proud, unifying, spirited and forward-looking. In shape and colour, it is a joyful hybrid of a woodpecker, a red cardinal, a northern waxwing and a swallow.
Its creation is the result of the collective ideation of the citizens of Fleurimont, Rues Principales King Est, the visual artist Sandra Tremblay and the Théâtre des Petites Lanternes.
Adress : 524 rue King Est, Sherbrooke
