The final selection is made up of painters, illustrators, muralists as well as current art artists, " emphasizes Nicolas Duvernois, project developer of the romeo's museum and founder, CEO of romeo's gin. According to an original idea from the Montreal-based company romeo's gin, for whom art is at the heart of its mission and values, the romeo's museum can also count on the support of major partners such as Sun Life Financial, UBISOFT and ALLIED. Together, they decided to join their strenghts to create a new model of cultural involvement and to integrate art into a transitional space. LOWE'S also joined the project by offering every artist the material they needed to create.

The romeo's museum, which shows how urban art now has its place more than ever, represents the largest gathering of urban artists in Montreal. In addition of being free, the museum is open to all, all year long, 24 hours a day. This is an excellent opportunity to discover facets of Montreal's creativity and history.
