The Alliance Française’s 2014 Decorative Arts Symposium series, French Style in the New World, will explore French Style, the people who participated in its evolution in France, and the way it was interpreted, adapted and used in the New World in the 19th and 20th centuries.
Jason Busch, Deputy Director for Curatorial Affairs and Museum Programs at the Saint Louis Art Museum, will explore the artistic and cultural panorama of the Mississippi River Valley as the conduit for transmitting art, fashionable objects, and ideas about design, especially those emanating from France in the mid-19th century that found a home along the river in places like Natchez and New Orleans.
Opportunities are still available for Grand Patron and Patron sponsorships. Please call Tom Driscoll at 312 337-1070 for more information on sponsorship benefits.
