MU’s very first benefit evening was held on October 3rd, 2013 at the Société des Arts Technologiques (SAT) in Montreal and delighted over 300 guests. With Gilles Ste-Croix, founding member of Cirque du Soleil as honorary chairperson, the evening was colorful, contemporary and eclectic. Works of art donated by MU’s collaborating muralists along with a variety of select items were sold in a silent auction. The festive atmosphere, the artistic performances, the live music and painting as well as the many prominent figures from the arts and cultural scene made this first benefit evening a resounding success! The generous contributions of our guests will enable MU to continue its mission of transforming Montreal into an open-air museum and of supporting new generations of creators.
