Is the average number of people that show up at an exhibit at a Maison de la Culture here in Montreal. Or if you prefer, 28 people per special event, or $620 in artists fees paid per show. These are based on the figures in this reprint of a press release by Le Vadrouilleur urbain.
If you figure that each show lasts about six weeks, and is open about five days/week – that’s 52/day. Since they are open about five hours each day, that would translate into an average of about 10 people each hour. The only time I’ve seen 10 or more people in an exhibit at a Maison de la Culture exhibit here in Montreal is during a vernissage.
