Here’s hoping this week gives us less snow than last.

If you’re looking for a few things to get your Monday going, here are a few things worth checking out around Montreal today, February 10.

Imagine Van Gogh

Montreal has been coated with an exhibition of the works of Vincent Van Gogh, the Dutch post-impressionist painter who is among the most famous figures in the history of the art world.

The exhibition, Imagine Van Gogh, which opened in December, takes guests through the world of colours and emotions of Van Gogh’s works through gigantic murals and an immersive soundtrack.

When: Monday, February 10
Time: 10 am to 6 pm
Where: Arsenal art contemporain — 2020 rue William
Price: $16 to $26, available online

Bleu, Blanc et Bouge

The Montreal Canadiens foundation has six outdoor, refrigerated rinks around the island. The professional-level rinks provide the opportunity for hockey players to develop their skating skills on exceptional quality ice.

The program is divided into six sessions of approximately 45 minutes each.

The rink is free to use but has rather strict schedules so the shinny hockey players don’t hit the ice at the same time as the little skaters.

Rinks can be found at the following spots around Montreal:

  • Villeray-St-Michel-Parc-Extension: François-Perrault Park
  • Montréal Nord: Carignan Park
  • Verdun: Willibrord Park
  • LaSalle: Hayward Park
  • Côte-des-Neiges-Notre-Dame-de-Grâce: Confederation Park
  • Ahuntsic-Cartierville: Mésy Park
When: Monday, February 10
Time: Varies per rink
Where: Various locations around Montreal
Price: Free admission

Galerie MX

An art gallery is always appealing, especially during February’s chilly days.

Galerie MX seeks to give greater exposure to contemporary artists, primarily from Canada, but from all over the globe as well.

The gallery is located in the heart of the Quarter international, the cultural epicenter for arts in Montreal in a sleek 6,000 sq. ft. exhibit space.

When: Every day in February
Time:
 10 am to 6 pm
Where: 333 Viger Avenue Ouest
Price: Free admission

$5 Comedy Show – The Comedy Nest

The Nest hosts their “Monday Mix” on – you guessed it – Mondays and this week’s show features Peter J. Radomski, Chantal Desjardins, Randy Komi, Hadi Kubba, music from Jennifer June Chapman, and a short film from Quinn Lague.

Starting off your week with some laughs might be a wise choice.

When: Monday, February 3
Time: 8 pm
Where: The Comedy Nest
Price: $5

Dollar Cinema

Dollar Cinema is an absolute gem of a find. They show second-run movies at a two-screen venue (only in English). It’s great for a date or for people who want to watch a relatively new movie on the big screen instead of Netflix. They’re currently highlighted by Uncut Gems, The Two Popes, The Irishman, Marriage Story, The Lion King, Once Upon a Time… In Hollywood, and The Addams Family to name a few, but check out the website for complete listing.

Oh yeah, snacks are $1.

When: Monday, February 10
Time: Varies per selection
Where: 6900 Boulevard Decarie, Côte Saint-Luc
Price: $2.50 general admission
