Open Air Museum – For Montreal’s 375th, the Museum of Fine Arts has created an open air museum on Sherbrooke street between Bishop and Victoria street. This “Walk of Peace” will be available until October 20th 2017. More than 30 different sculptures and art installations from contemporary local and international artists will be on show this Fall. Photographies from 13 Montrealer artists will also be part of the “Walk of Peace”.
The aim of this open air museum is to express fundamental values of humanism and peace with everybody. Each installation shares in their own way a commitment, a thought or a humanist and peaceful message, beyond the aesthetics, their materials and installation itself.
The Open Air Museum is completely FREE and open to the public. The kilometre long art installations will also display flags from 200 different countries as well as the 13 provinces and territories of Canada. Artists in this year’s edition of the Open Air Museum include Magdalena Abakanowicz, Cesar Baldaccini, Cesar Romero Betsabée, Jonathan Borofsky, Fernando Botero, Luben Boykov, Alexander Calder, Claude Cormier, Wim Delvoye, Jim Dine Sorel Etrog, Ivan Eyre, Joe Fafard, Barry Flanagan, Rose-Marie Goulet, Keith Haring, Zhang Huan, Charles Joseph, Yayoi Kusama, Ju Ming, Robert Murray, Dennis Oppenheim, Niki de Saint Phalle, Giuseppe Penone, Michelangolo Pistoletto, Richard Prince, Ugo Rondinone, Wang Shugang and Catherine Sylvain.
