The 59th Museum Ball, co-chaired by Marc Parent and Jean Raby, is the most important fundraising event of the year for the MMFA and will mark the inauguration of the Stephan Crétier and Stéphany Maillery Wing for the Arts of One World, which features more than 1,400 works from around the globe, past to present.

The artistic direction of Cirque du Soleil’s Melissa Thompson will immerse guests in an exhilarating universe of spectacular installations depicting a world where different cultures interact and the MMFA drives cultural diplomacy.
