This municipal museum, housed in the former La Louvière Law Courts, recently renamed the Mill, has a dual purpose. On the one hand he exhibits the collection of works by the Belgian artist of Romanian origin Idel Ianchelevici (1990-1994) on the ground floor. But it also offers a variety of temporary exhibitions on the first floor. The permanent Ianchelevici collection includes about sixty sculptures in marble, stone, bronze and plaster, as well as numerous drawings that allow us to discover the unity of the artist's work centred on the human figure. A small collection of medals and medallions also remains. Ianchelevici's early modelling, which was expressionist in the early 1930s, quickly evolved towards purity and stylization of form. The artist is also the author of public monuments, the best known of which are undoubtedly Le Plongeur et son arc, created in 1939 for the International Water Exhibition in Liège, Le Résistant, built in 1954 opposite the Breendonck fort, the Stanley Monument in Kinshasa (Democratic Republic of Congo) and L'Appel, a monument proudly enthroned at the entrance to the town, near the motorway. The vast rooms on the first floor of the museum are reserved for temporary exhibitions and events that are organized around a program centered on contemporary art, multidisciplinary and with varied themes. In addition to the numerous exhibitions, various activities are offered, including creative workshops, to introduce the youngest to art.
