Over 800 people from the arts and business scenes attended the MAC’s renown and highly anticipated annual ball to support the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal. This year’s exclusive event, titled Candide, was held at Arsenal art contemporain. Guests enjoyed a fun, memorable evening as they were immersed in a playful, nostalgic world. During the event, over $700,000 were raised in support of the museum’s activities.
A major financial impact
Every year, the MAC Ball, the Fondation’s main source of funding, sells out months in advance. The standout event marking the start of a new cultural year and its prominent guests help create a strong community for the MAC while building a network of patrons committed to local culture.
Thanks to this event, the Fondation can take concrete part in funding the museum’s activities. This important contribution is used, most notably, to support the MAC’s educational activities, enrich the MAC’s Collection, extend the reach of contemporary Quebec artists and bring some of today’s leading international artists to Montreal.
