A Mont-Tremblant showcase for excellence in visuals arts and in crafts, the Alphonse-Desjardins Room annually presents ten or so exhibitions by artists and professional craftspersons from this area and elsewhere. Located in city hall beneath the Samuel-Ouimet Library, it also welcomes exhibition projects from the community.
Suspended from the room's ceiling at a height of 3.7 metres, a sculpture by René Derouin, called Espace suspendu (Suspended Space) is reminiscent of a light fixture suspended by eight fine steel cables. On an aluminum platform pierced by cut-outs made by waterjet cutting, about 300 ceramic figures 15 to 18 centimetres tall are arranged in a circle. The sculpture is level with the main floor of the library and visitors can fully enjoy the work from that perspective.
