As part of the Journées de la Culture, from September 30 to October 2, 2016, join free walking tours to see public art of the McCord Museum and the McGill campus, an initiative of Art Public Montréal.
The McCord Museum and McGill University will offer a one-hour outdoor tour that presents a selection of the public art of the two collections. The visit begins at the McCord Museum, with the presentation of two works commissioned in 1992, for the Museum’s reopening: a work by Pierre Granche located on the Victoria Street side of the building, and Inukshuk on Sherbrooke Street. Visitors will then cross to the north side of the street to continue the visit with six pieces located on the main campus of McGill University, including the James Square Sculpture Garden; works by Marius Barbeau, Charles Daudelin and several other artists.
Art Public Montréal is a project created by the Ville de Montréal, the ministère de la Culture et des Communications and Tourisme Montréal.
These visits are free. Limited number of places.
