Montréal, March 1, 2017 – To mark the 100th anniversary of the National Hockey League this year, Pointe-à-Callière is mounting an exhibition on our national winter sport: hockey!
Our museum would like to borrow collector’s items from the public. Do you have any memorabilia from the Montréal Canadiens, the Québec Nordiques or other old-time Montréal hockey teams (Maroons, Victorias, etc.) that you would be willing to lend us for this exhibition?
We are looking for objects, works of art and photos with links to the players and history and highlights of these teams that are such an important part of our collective imagination. It’s a unique opportunity to share your passion for hockey, your special treasures and your childhood memories!
- You have one or more items associated with the Montréal Canadiens, the Québec Nordiques or old-time Montréal hockey teams;
- You are willing to have them displayed in an exhibition;
- You are prepared to lend them to the Museum from October 2017 to May 2018;
- Send a short message describing the item(s) and characteristics (dates, origins, size, etc.), with a photo, to firstname.lastname@example.org.
This call for items closes on Friday, March 31. Pointe-à-Callière will select a number of the items offered, and notify their owners. Each lender chosen will receive an invitation to the exhibition preview, and Museum passes for two people.
Note that Pointe-à-Callière reserves the right to refuse any items offered even if they meet the selection criteria, e.g. if a subject has already been thoroughly covered in the exhibition or the space for a given subject is already full.
Please send your offers by e-mail only.
We cannot accept offers made in person at the Museum.
