La Balade pour la Paix:
    An Open-air Museum

    Major public art project along Sherbrooke Street
    June 5 to October 29, 2017

This world-class public art walk, created by the MMFA, celebrates Montreal’s 375th birthday, the 50th anniversary of Expo 67 and Canada’s 150th birthday, brings together four institutions in Montreal, city of culture and knowledge. It stretches along one kilometre, from the McGill campus and McCord Museum to Concordia University and the Museum’s new Pavilion for Peace. Sixty-seven works along this route represent the universal values of humanism, tolerance and openness that inspired Man and His World, Montreal’s world fair in 1967. It will feature sculptures, installations and photographic collections by contemporary Canadian and international artists, as well as flags from around the world and from Canada’s provinces and territories. The project was designed by Claude Cormier.

Montreal’s 375th anniversary presents La Balade pour la paix, developed and organized by the MMFA, with support from McCord Museum and from Concordia and McGill universities.
