MONTREAL (CelebrityAccess) Montreal’s Musée d’art Contemporain (MAC) has invited Nuit Blanche revelers tonight to “Leonard Cohen: A Crack in Everything,” an exhibition the museum calls its most successful in recent history.

The museum is open from 6 p.m. to 2 a.m. and free as part of the 15th annual Nuit Blanche.

Montreal Nuit Blanche, starting as early as noon and ending as late as 6 a.m. the morning of March 4th, features around 200 mostly free cultural, musical, culinary, and sports-oriented activities is a Montreal en Lumière festival of lights highlight.

The museum would normally expect about 4,000 to 5,000 people on Nuit Blanche, but because of the popular Cohen exhibition, they are ready to accommodate up to 7,000, said MAC spokesperson Roxane Dumas-Noël.

The MAC will have security guards in place to ensure its rooms don’t overflow and encumber the intended experience for its visitors.

With MAC’s “Leonard Cohen: A Crack in Everything” Visitors” walk through a series of rooms and experience different facets of Cohen’s legacy including his music, personal life and his political impact.

“It’s not a biographical exhibition, so it’s not something that’s, ‘Here, step-by-step, is the life of Leonard Cohen,'” Dumas-Noël said. “It’s really an experience.”

To date 200,000 visitors have seen the exhibition, since it opened last November.

As part of the museum’s offerings tonight, there will be guided tours and free art workshops until midnight.

“Leonard Cohen: A Crack in Everything” will run at Musée d’art Contemporain until April 9th.
