AFL is dedicated to advancing the Louvre’s mission through an active grant-making program. It raises awareness of the Louvre’s collections and museum expertise, and helps make the Museum’s exhibitions and permanent collections more accessible in the U.S. and around the world.


Upcoming Event

Virtual Gala

Until we can once again meet in person, Joan Kahn and Christopher Forbes are delighted to announce that American Friends of the Louvre is going virtual for its gala on November 9.
