As part of Journées de la culture 2016, the McGill Visual Arts Collection held guided tours of the outdoor installations of the McCord Museum and the McGill Campus through an initiative of Art Public Montréal.
A one-hour outdoor tour presented a selection of the public art of the two collections. The visit began at the McCord Museum with the presentation of two works commissioned in 1992 for the Museum’s reopening: a work by Pierre Granche located on the Victoria Street side of the building, along with the Inukshuk on Sherbrooke Street. Visitors then crossed to the north side of the street to continue the visit with six pieces located on the main campus of McGill University, including the James Sculpture Garden.
Art Public Montréal is a project created by the Ville de Montréal's
Ministère de la Culture et des Communications, and Tourisme Montréal.
