The Inside Track on Building Corporate Art Collections

Authored by: Anna Wiebe on May 6, 2011

I’ll admit it, if someone had asked me a few months ago if I wanted to go to a lecture on corporate art collections, my eyes may have glazed over. Fortunately, I got the chance to change my mind! Far from being a snore, this is actually an exciting topic, especially as discussed by M. Paul Maréchal, Curator of the Power Corporation of Canada Art Collection. The Power Corporation has one of the most important corporately owned collections in Canada and the story and vision behind how it came to be is an interesting one. We don’t often hear about these works of art in the non-profit sector, but M. Maréchal is coming to the WAG on May 19 at 7pm to enlighten us all. Join us for the talk and stay for the 8pm free public opening of William Brymner: Artist, Teacher, Colleague and Quilt of Belonging. M. Maréchal is the co-curator of the William Brymner exhibition.
