Important Update

American Friends of the Louvre and Postponements due to COVID-19

As a result of travel restrictions and cautionary measures related to containing the spread of COVID-19, American Friends of the Louvre has postponed the date of its April 21 Dinner Dance to September 30. The event will take place at the Lotte New York Palace in New York and will celebrate AFL’s exceptional projects benefiting the Louvre Museum. Spring activities for the Young Patrons Circle have also been postponed.

The Louvre Museum is currently closed and will postpone its spring exhibition opening dates.

AFL will keep members and donors updated on a regular basis as events are rescheduled and on news about the Louvre’s reopening. AFL wishes everyone a safe and healthy spring until then.
