A contemporary art museum dedicated to exhibiting and then supporting the artists even after the exhibits through the purchase of their work, this beautiful museum is a favorite of many Parisians. It is nestled in the Montparnasse district of Paris, hence it is central and accessible. The foundation collaborates with other city institutions to expand its exhibiting reach. The wildly popular, 'We The Trees,' temporary exhibit was extended several months and some of the auxiliary audio-visual media material can still be accessed on the site. This isn't the only example of dynamic curating that the young team at the Fondation has a penchant for, so check the website to see what's current. Likely there will be something that appeals to your artistic senses. And the grounds, in the summer time, are a welcoming, shady place to take a breath and enjoy an outdoor snack.
