A gala evening, with contemporary art happening at the Arsenal ephemeral hotel.

Under the leadership of honorary co-chairs Guy Côté, Portfolio Manager and Senior Vice-President, National Bank Financial, Alexandre L’Heureux, Chief Financial Officer, WSP Global Inc., and Bertrand Cesvet, Chairman and owner, Sid Lee, the stand-out event of Montréal’s fall cultural season took place this past September 19. The 800 guests were invited to a great gathering in that extraordinary venue for celebrating art, the Arsenal, which was transformed into a grand hotel from another age under the generous artistic direction of Sid Lee.

The Bal du MAC organizing committee, chaired for a sixth year by the amazing and indefatigable Debbie Zakaib, was made up of Sophie Banford, Ruby Brown, Violette Cohen, Robert Côté, Naila Del Cid, Nathalie Goyette, Josée Noiseux, Danièle Patenaude, Katerine Rocheleau and Marie-Josée Simard.

The evening, which has become an essential fall event on the artistic and philanthropic scene, raised more than $700,000 for the Fondation du MAC. We are most grateful to all our partners who support the development and outreach of the Musée d’art contemporain: National Bank Financial, WSP Global Inc., Sid Lee, Arsenal, Deloitte, Manulife, Pomerleau, Power Corporation of Canada, Québecor Inc., Vidéotron, Stingray Digital, SNC Lavalin, Stikeman Elliott, Telus, Debbie Zakaib and Alexandre Taillefer.
