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.
