This 224 square foot historical fresco was made by artist Roger Alexandre in collaboration with calligrapher Luc Saucier for the 400th anniversary of Samuel de Champlain’s passage on the Richelieu River. The mural offers a retrospective of the city of St. Jean-sur-Richelieu and highlights memorable events that contributed to its history and development, an illustration of the city’s past and its roots.  The work was produced in studio using acrylic on fiberglass panels.

The mural was made possible thanks to a cultural development agreement with the Ministère de la Culture, des Communications et de la Condition Feminine du Québec in addition to the financial support of National Assembly Deputy Mr. Dave Turcotte and the Caisse Populaire of St. Jean-sur-Richelieu, Vallée des Forts and Sieur D’Iberville.
