Friends of the Museum

The Association

Founded in 1980, today the association has more than 1000 members. Apart from the many events it organises, the association makes donations of valuable works of art to the Musée cantonal des Beaux-Arts and contributes to the cost of publication of books and catalogues.
The Association is very closely involved with the plans for the construction of a new Musée des Beaux-Arts.
