Journées de la culture
September 30th and October 1st, at 10:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m.
As part of the Journées de la culture, join free walking tours to see public art of the McCord Museum and the McGill campus, in collaboration with Art Public Montréal.
The McCord Museum and McGill Visual Arts Collection will hold a one-and-a-half-hour outdoor tour that presents a selection of the public art of the two collections. The visit begins at the McCord Museum with two works commissioned in 1992, for the Museum’s reopening: a work by Pierre Granche located on the Victoria Street side of the building, along with the Inukshuk on Sherbrooke Street. Visitors will then be invited to walk part of La Balade pour la Paix, visiting several temporary installations, including the works of Jim Dine, Luben Boykov, Wang Shugang, and Niki de Saint-Phalle. The visit will end with a short performance by Schulich School of Music students.
Art Public Montréal is a project created by the Ville de Montréal, the ministère de la Culture et des Communications and Tourisme Montréal.
