The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts (MMFA) will acknowledge the commitment of healthcare workers during the COVID-19 pandemic by offering them free admission on Monday, August 3 and 10.

Upon reservation, they will be able to discover the major exhibition currently on display, Paris in the Days of Post-Impressionism: Signac and the Indépendants, along with their family or loved ones.

"The pandemic has mobilized health professionals like never before: they have redoubled their efforts to care for those affected by the disease and to protect those most vulnerable,” says Mélanie Deveault, Director of Education and Wellness at the MMFA. “The MMFA's staff would like to offer them a moment of respite with their families so they can revel in the beauty of works by Paul Signac and his contemporaries.
