Franco-American Museum of Blérancourt combines heritage and cooperation

On March 15, 2013, American Friends of Blérancourt will open an exhibition in Naples, FL, titled "The War of Anne Morgan: Rebuilding a devastated France from 1917 to 1923," which recalls the efforts of these American women committed to helping people in several towns and villages in the north of France after WWI.

The American Friends of Blérancourt was created in 1985 to help revive the Château de Blérancourt.

The Château de Blérancourt plays host to the museum which pays tribute to political, social and cultural ties between France and the United States and particularly how this has evolved over the three last centuries.

This museum is unique in the sense that it is the only one dedicated to the relationship between these two countries. The collections include paintings, sculptures, prints, drawings, photographs, documents, and historical objects.

American Friends of Blérancourt collaborates with the DMF (Direction des Musées de France) in order to expand and renovate the museum. They also organize various events such as trips, visits, conferences and exhibitions in order to teach more about its history.

In this context, the opening of the photograp exhibition titled "The War of Anne Morgan: Rebuilding a devastated France from 1917-1923," will be held in Naples, FL on March 15th. Photographs from the archives of the Franco-American Museum, Château de Blérancourt, will be on display at the Arsenault Gallery in Naples, Florida from March 15-29, 2013.

Developed in close collaboration with the Alliance Française of Bonita Springs, the opening of the exhibition, on March, 15, 2013, will be followed by a dinner at the Naples Yacht Club, in the presence of Steffanie Pearce of the Naples Opera, who will perform on this occasion.
