The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts (MMFA) installed a new gallery dedicated to Sikh art in the museum’s Stephan Crétier and Stéphany Maillery Wing for the Arts of One World.

The collection displayed were donated to the museum along with financial contributions by the late Sikh couple, Narinder Singh Kapany and Satinder Kaur Kapany, who were founders of California-based Sikh Foundation International, as well as Baljit Singh Chadha and Roshi Chadha, of Montreal.
