The Musée de Charlevoix is actively engaged in the democratization of culture and the cultural development of the region. Major works of art of popular artists have been added to the collection throughout the years, giving the Musée a unique spot in the museum network of Québec. The presence of famous artists in the region, attracted by the beautiful landscapes, has given rise to a surge of talented artists in Charlevoix. This anthology of regional folk art painters has prompted the Musée to take in interest in folk art, naïve, pure and undisciplined art forms from Québec and elsewhere. The collection also contains a great number of significant works in these unique artistic fields.
