Hommage à la collection permanente

The new Michal and Renata Hornstein Pavilion for Peace was inaugurated in 2016, becoming Montreal Museum of Fine Arts’ fifth pavilion. Two levels are dedicated to The Studios Art & Education Michel de la Chenelière which are devoted exclusively to the Museum’s educational activities and exhibitions. In this context MU was invited to create a playful and educative art installation in the s2 level cafeteria.

This immense mural pays homage to the Museum’s encyclopedic collection by representing its major holdings in a playful and colorful way.

The concept was developed by MU’s art educator Isabelle Duguay, under the artistic direction of Elizabeth-Ann Doyle.
