An exhibition that allows you to go back in time, discover the prehistoric animals present in the Eure valley, in Saint-Prest, and highlighted by archaeologists in the mid-19th century.

An almost complete fossilized skeleton of a woolly mammoth, on loan from the Museum of Prehistoric Anthropology of Monaco, is displayed in the chapel of the Museum of Fine Arts.

It will surely impress young and old. Various themed workshops are also offered during the holidays.

From 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. (until Sunday, June 5). Prices for self-guided tours: €6, €3 reduced price. At 29, Notre-Dame cloister. In family.

2/ Rock atmosphere, in the priory of San Vicente

CdL, a Chartresian artist since 2017, exhibits dozens of black and white portraits at the Saint-Vincent Priory that immerse visitors in the heart of rock star concerts. The artist has notably captured the worlds of Pete Doherty, Iggy Pop, the Rolling Stones, Marilyn Manson, Charlotte Gainsbourg and Michel Polnareff.

Rock’n’roll will rock the Saint-Vincent de Chartres priory until April 24

We also immerse ourselves in their music, discovering, thanks to the QR codes, the songs of the artists on display. You can also see pictures of Chartres. Note, above, a small part of the exhibition is reserved for an informed public…

At the priory of Saint-Vincent, 12, rue Porte-Cendreuse in Chartres. Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday, from 2 pm to 6 pm, and Friday and Saturday, from 2 pm to 7 pm. Free entry.

3/ In libraries

Unmissable places of culture, the libraries of Chartres offer various exhibitions. At Louis-Aragon and at Apostrophe, a selection of poems on the theme of the Printemps des Poètes 2022 “The Ephemeral” is visible until April 30. What to be inspired, awakened.

Two amazing events not to be missed at the Château de Maintenon!

“It is time to re-probe the ephemeral. Don’t wait until tomorrow. Questioning here and now the most fragile, the most secret, the most incredible of our existence”, emphasizes the artistic director of the event, Sophie Nauleau. We also find the pen of authors from Chartres, such as Cédric Merland and Christophe Jubien.

The L’Paille à sons festival, in Chartres, will have to move

In the Apostrophe media library, a retrospective look at the birth of the euro is offered, with the presentation of objects used in the transition period, and which we already look at with nostalgia today (on the 2nd floor). During the holidays, the media library also offers various events, such as a video game tournament (Wednesday), the screening of the film cro-man (Thursday), or a meeting with Mohamed Mbougar Sarr (Friday), Prix Goncourt 2021 for The most secret memory of men..

Louis-Aragon Library, Passage des Poètes. Apostrophe Library, 1, boulevard Maurice-Viollette. Free entry.

4/ Effect of matter on the Chemin des arts

As part of the well-known Chemin des arts, Nathalie Chauliac presents her mosaics in the Saint-Éman chapel. The mosaic artist diverts materials, particularly eggshell, to develop a series of paintings and bas-reliefs. Black is also mixed with color to create nuances and contrasts.

From 2:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. until Sunday, June 5. Free entry.
