The 54th edition of the Museum Ball was held on November 15, 2014, under the distinguished patronage of Co-Presidents Luc Bachand, Vice Chairman & Head, BMO Capital Markets – Quebec; Claude Mongeau, President and Chief Executive Officer, CN; and Alan P. Rossy, President and Chief Executive Officer, Groupe Copley. Roula Rossy, Chief Designer at Groupe Copley and Director of The Alan and Roula Rossy Family Foundation, presided over the Steering Committee. The City of Montreal, which was honoured at this 54th Museum Ball, was represented by Mayor Denis Coderre, proud ambassador of our beautiful city.
Inspired by the exhibition Van Gogh to Kandinsky: Impressionism to Expressionism, 1900-1914, this magnificent celebration raised $1,313,000. These funds will help finance the acquisition of new works of art, the presentation of international exhibitions and the development of educational and cultural programmes at the Museum.
