Musée d'Art Contemporain de Baie St Paul

Baie St Paul

This architecturally attention-grabbing gallery houses contemporary art by local artists and some photographic exhibits both from its own 3000-piece collection or on loan from the National Gallery of Canada. The museum also organizes an international contemporary art symposium in early August.
