As a fundraising event, each year the Volunteer Association of the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts organizes its Valentine's Day party. The event allows the Museum to continue to put on its top notch exhibitions and to acquire new pieces for its permanent collection. This year the evening is entitled 'Eyes Wide Open – Temptation". The event is a masked one (based on the 'Eyes Wide Shut' film) and party-goers will be treated to an evening of food, drinks, dancing, and exciting shows. A theme of the evening will be the ongoing battle/love story between good and evil represented by the Angel and the Devil. This love story will be represented and interpreted by singers, dancers, DJs, and artists. The sensual music and environment will stimulate the battle between the Devil and the Angel and it is only at the end of the evening that we will find out who is the victor! Remember to wear your mask (If you don't have one a free black one will be provided for you at the door) and allow your inhibitions to melt away during this fun evening! Places are limited so be sure to buy your tickets early in order not to be disappointed and miss out on one of the finest social events of the year.
