Since 1979, Loto-Québec has played an important role in Quebec’s cultural and artistic ecosystem. Loto-Québec’s art procurement program has facilitated the building of a collection that, in 2016, is estimated to contain almost 5000 works by more than 1200 Quebecois artists.
In this context, the crown corporation gave a piece of outdoor public art by René Derouin to the Ville de Mont-Tremblant that culturally enriches the city. Mr. Derouin, a multidisciplinary Quebecois artist, has received many honours and awards during his career, including being named Chevalier of the ordre national du Québec in 2008. His works are found in art collections around the world.
