From July to October 2017, the Visual Arts Collection held regular guided tours of Balade pour la Paix, an open-air museum along Sherbrooke Street, which took as its theme the possibility of openness, peace, and diversity among nations. Created by the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, in collaboration with McGill University, the exhibition was part of the official program of Montreal's 375th anniversary, and also commemorated the 50th anniversary of Expo 67, and the 150th anniversary of Canadian Confederation.

Visitors were invited to experience the big, bright sculpture lining McGill's campus, together with photography installations and international flags, as they toured part of this monumental exhibition.
