American Friends of the Musée d’Orsay

AFMO raises public awareness and financial support for the Musée d’Orsay and the Musée de l’Orangerie, located in Paris, France. These tax-exempt funds support exhibitions, education, building renovations, and provide cultural enrichment for Americans in the United States and Paris. AFMO also acquires works of art to lend and eventually gift to the museum.

AFMO was begun by American citizens who recognized the contribution made by the Musée d’Orsay to American museums and to the American public. In 2008, following a highly successful collaboration between the Art Institute of Chicago and the Musée d’Orsay, Guy Cogeval, the new Président of the Orsay, and Olivier Simmat, Director of International Relations and Development, voiced their enthusiastic support for the formation of an “American Friends.”
