What is the Angel Circle?

Founded in 2016 by the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts Foundation, the philanthropic goal of the Angel Circle is to support the presentation of major exhibitions and make the Museum more accessible for underprivileged families. Through joining the Circle, a member enjoys building strong relationships with outgoing individuals who want to stay abreast of new trends in art, design and music.

Egyptian Evening

Activities for members, like the Egyptian Evening, are intended to provide them with experiences that no other visitor can benefit from, including the unique experience of visiting the art restoration laboratories and exclusive encounters with artists, curators, collectors and philanthropists.
