Laurent Duvernay-Tardif, right guard for the Kansas City Chiefs, is the first active NFL player to have graduated as a medical doctor. His professional career path is so exceptional that the Kansas City Star, a U.S. daily paper, called him “the most interesting man in the NFL.”
Born in Mont St-Hilaire, Laurent is also very active with his foundation, created in 2017. Its objective is to promote a balance for young people among sports, arts and studies. The LDT Foundation is powered by the conviction that physical activity, like creativity, is a fundamental factor for school success in children.
An accomplished sportsman, medical graduate and arts lover, Laurent could be called a true Renaissance man!
I really admire the talent of our Québec artists and, even if I am a newcomer to contemporary art, I would like to share some of the feelings and thoughts their work inspires in me.
Here are my 5 top favourites in the Montréal public art collection.
