For nearly 35 years, Loto-Québec has been supporting Québec’s contemporary visual arts creators and contributing to the popularity of local artists. Recognized as one of the province’s largest corporate collections, the Collection Loto-Québec showcases its works throughout Québec.
We, at Loto-Québec, are proud to be part of a state-owned corporation that supports local creativity in the arts.
Through its program for the acquisition of contemporary art and its special relationship with emerging as well as renowned artists from all parts of Québec, the corporation dedicates one hundredth of 1% of its sales figures for the acquisition of works, which translates into about 200 works a year. Today, our collection contains more than 4,500 works created by nearly 1,200 Québec artists, making it without a doubt one of the most impressive corporate collections in the country. The development of the Collection is therefore an integral part of Loto-Québec’s contributions to the community.
I invite you to discover this important link to our artistic heritage by visiting the exhibitions presented at Espace Création Loto-Québec located at our head offices, or to see the numerous works of our collection that are on loan to a variety of museums throughout Québec. Our collection is also your collection. It exists for - and belongs to - you.
