Sailboats, a unique and poetic collective work on Du Musée Avenue

The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts (MMFA) is proud to have presented Sailboats, an artistic installation by the Collectif Escargo erected on Du Musée Avenue in the summer of 2020. Through its chromatic touches juxtaposed on the ground, the work highlighted the unique talent of post-impressionist painters.

This work also paid tribute to the more than 7,000 donors who generously contributed to the MMFA Foundation's 2019-2020 annual campaign, as well as to the partners, volunteers and employees of the Museum and its Foundation. Their support is crucial and we extend our most sincere thanks to them.

Since the MMFA is not a state museum, it must largely self-finance its operating budget, as well as its acquisitions of works of art.

To ensure sound governance and the best possible performance, the MMFA Foundation adheres to the values of commitment, the pursuit of excellence, solidarity, respect and integrity.
