La Pulperie de Chicoutimi Regional Museum
The charming museum in the Chicoutimi Pulp Mill has a new permanent exhibit, Arthur Villeneuve Far from Naïve!, which traces the unlikely career of Arthur Villeneuve, a painter without any artistic training who became an important force in the Québec art scene. Many of his paintings and drawings, which represented natural and urban landscapes, are displayed in this interactive exhibit. Perhaps the most unusual and incredible part of the exhibit: Villeneuve's fresco-covered house was moved right into the gallery for display. (The Canadian government designated the house a Cultural Heritage Site.)
