Description

In celebration of its ninetieth anniversary, the McCord Museum presents a dynamic collection of ninety of its most treasured pieces. Carefully chosen from a collection of more than one million artefacts, images, and manuscripts, this exhibition catalogue brings together the people, artists, and communities of Montreal's past and present to tell the story of a constantly changing city and museum. Dedicated to the preservation, study, and appreciation of Montreal's history, the McCord Museum first opened in 1921 and was the result one man's dream of forging links between his country's diverse cultures. David Ross McCord (1844-1930) was a lawyer and negotiator for Aboriginal communities and his passion for Canadian history compelled him to found a national museum in the heart of Montreal. Nearly a century later, the McCord Museum continues to reinvent itself to reflect its city and the world in interactive and thought-provoking ways. 90 Treasures, 90 Stories, 90 Years is an intimate glimpse of the past. The exhibit, produced by scenographer Daniel Castonguay, features fascinating objects in a dynamic and contemporary display that showcases Montreal's diverse peoples and their extraordinary histories.
