The 58th Montreal Museum of Fine Arts Ball will take place on Saturday, November 3, gathering approximately 1,000 guests. The MMFA’s most important fundraising event of the year, the Museum Ball has become a staple of Montreal’s cultural scene. The 2018 Ball will be inspired by the highly colourful fashion world in all its glory and will provide an exceptional showcase for the genius and creative force of many Quebec designers. The evening will begin with a cocktail during which guests will be invited to discover our major fall exhibition, Alexander Calder: Radical Inventor. It will continue with a sumptuous banquet followed by a dance party.
The 2018 Museum Ball will be co-chaired by Mitch Garber, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Invest in Canada and Chairman of the Board of Directors of Cirque du Soleil; Isabèle Chevalier, President and CEO of Bio K+; and Mark Pathy, President of Mavrik Corp. The event’s advisory committee consists of Caroline Deitcher, Willamina Leus Martire, Julie Moisan, Louise Racine and Debbie Zakaib.
Under the bold and resolutely artistic direction of Catherine Nadeau and Melissa Thompson, members of the Cirque du Soleil Creative Intelligence team, the evening promises to mark the imagination of its guests and carry them to a universe where Montreal creativity and talent will be in the spotlight.
All funds raised during this prestigious event go towards enriching the Museum’s collection through the acquisition of new works of art, organizing international exhibitions and developing many educational, cultural and art therapy programmes that make the MMFA a pioneer within the international museum community.
