San Francisco Just Got A Little More French: Fine Arts Museums Make a Deal with the Louvre

Last week, big news in the art world hit San Francisco. The Fine Arts Museums announced an exclusive agreement between the de Young/Legion of Honor and the Louvre. Over the next five years, the world's most famous museum will collaborate with FAMSF on a series of exhibitions and exchanges, including plans to share significant works of art—which means that San Francisco will have unprecedented access to some of the iconic works usually kept on lockdown in Paris.

"I only want one picture," said FAMSF board president Dede Wilsey. "And that's the Mona Lisa."
