First visit to Les Franciscaines for the Friends of the Museum

Ils ont été les premiers à visiter le chantier et à découvrir sur site et en détail le projet des Franciscaines

The members of the Friends of the Museum association, under the presidency of Jean-Edouard Mazery, were welcomed on Saturday by Caroline Clémensat, Deputy Director General of the City's services in charge of the project, and Jean-Yves Houel, associate architect of the Moatti & Rivière agency, Lynda Frenois, curator of the Museum and her assistant Cécile Le Brenne. Plans and sketches were presented to them. The Friends of the Museum then joined the Books & Music Festival. Their involvement in the future project will encourage them to follow and get involved in the cultural life of Deauville for two years.


A major role in revitalizing the collections

The Association of Friends of the Deauville Museum is an independent association governed by the law of 1901. Its objective is to support the creation of Les Franciscaines Museum and its development with three main missions.

As a priority, to contribute to the enrichment of Les Franciscaines collections by organizing the search for donations and the collection of funds for acquisitions. The association will also finance acquisitions, the production of works and publications and any other action that may contribute to the development and prosperity of the place. The Friends of the Museum may also facilitate partnerships or patronage, even if the City has commissioned a company specialized in this field.

Finally, it will also contribute to the promotion of the events of the place and will be able to organize any event to enrich the knowledge and nourish the artistic sensitivity of everyone: conferences, visits, artistic trips?
