The Masked Ball held on October 8, 2009 celebrated the opening of exhibitions of work by three women artists: Francine Savard, Tricia Middleton and Tacita Dean. The museum was utterly transformed under the artistic direction of Dick Walsh. The evening was presided over by Honorary Chair Serge Paquette, Managing Partner, National Public Relations. The event was a great success, and the organizing committee, chaired by Marie-Claude Tellier, was able to proudly declare: Mission accomplished!
