On McGill College Avenue from June 24 to October 18, 2009

This exhibition has ended.

With discovery and experimentation as its theme, the McCord Museum's new outdoor exhibition explores 3D vision as made possible in the 19th century with the invention of stereoscopic photography. The images presented on McGill College Avenue are part of the Notman Photographic Archives of the Museum and allow visitors to view 12 scenes of historical Montreal and Quebec in 3D, aided by today's digital technology. The outdoor exhibition is presented free of charge, and a virtual version will also be featured on the McCord's Web site.

The McCord Museum wishes to thank our major partners, Rio Tinto Alcan and Borough of Ville-Marie for their generous support, without whom this series of exhibitions would not have been possible. We also wish to thank our Associate Partner BMO Financial Group as well as our McGill College Corporate Partners, Bell Canada, Busac Immobilier, Cominar, Place Bonaventure and Polaris for their generous support of this exhibition.

The exhibition is presented free of charge and is installed along the west side of McGill College Avenue, between de Maisonneuve Boulevard and Ste-Catherine Street.
