The sun: the work of art Montrealers and tourists fell in love with last summer
Following the exhibition Chihuly: Utterly Breathtaking, hundreds of people called, wrote and emailed the Museum to say how much they would like The sun to remain in Montreal. Faced with this spontaneous enthusiasm and with the contribution of the artist, the Museum decided to respond to this public outpouring by launching an appeal to allow tourists and Montrealers to make a contribution, according to their means, in order to help The sun shine in Montreal all year long. All gifts, no matter how small, are welcome!
The campaign has already raised 60% of the required sum to enable the MMFA to acquire this impressive work of art composed of almost 1,200 rays of blown glass!
How can you make a gift so that The sun will shine in Montreal all year long?
