The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts has one of the highest attendance rates among Canadian museums. This is no surprise considering the vast collection and exhibitions held every year across multiple disciplines including fine arts, music, film, fashion and design. Could this weekend be the perfect time to discover the four thousand works in its universalist collection? Or the final weeks of the exhibition Peru: Kingdoms of the Sun and Moon? Even better, the museum is just moments from Sofitel Montreal and we can even ensure you skip the line. How magnifique….
GO MIA IN MN
The Minneapolis Institute of Arts is an internationally recognized institution and one of our favorite finds. Whether you’re interested in Ancient Egyptian artifacts or European masterpieces by artists such as Titian and Monet, with more than 80,000 works of art that span more than 5,000 years, this is the place to go. Our favorite find for this long weekend is ‘More Real? Art in the Age of Truthiness’ features work by 28 of today’s most accomplished and promising international artists, including Ai Weiwei, Vik Muniz and Thomas Demand, who explore our shifting experience of reality in a period of unprecedented technological change and global social upheaval.

Renata Morales is one of Montreal’s best kept secrets. This multi-faceted artist, underground music aficionado, fashion designer and Montreal tastemaker will inhabit the PHI Centre in Montreal from June 5th to 12th and program it with her unique vision. During the 8 days in June the designer will be orchestrating what might seem like a art/fashion fair during the day and cabaret by night. Renata will also propose a series of music shows, film screenings and a curated pop-up shop offering exclusive fashion labels sourced from her friends, the most talented designers in Montreal, as well as limited edition items not found in Canada. A unique and not to be missed event.
ON THIS DAY IN….
Happy birthday to American painter and printmaker Mary Cassatt, born May 22, 1844! Although born in America, she lived much of her adult life in France, where she first befriended Edgar Degas and later exhibited among the Impressionists. This portrait of the artist’s mother, Mrs. Robert S. Cassatt, is currently on view in Gallery 28 at the De young Museum in SF.

FRANCE COMES TO MINNEAPOLIS
Although we have always considered Sofitel Minneapolis the ‘French star’ of the city, traveling to the real thing is now a lot easier with Air France today beginning a direct non-stop service from Minneapolis-St. Paul to Paris-Charles de Gaulle airport. The new seasonal summer service will operate five times a week until June 16 and then daily from June 17 to Sept. 1. Paris was never so close! Congratulations Air France!
HAVANA IN MIAMI
