The American Friends of the Louvre (AFL) was founded by the Musée du Louvre in 2002 to strengthen ties between the Louvre and its American public, and to formalize the long-standing generosity of American patrons. Since 1793, the Louvre has welcomed new and emerging artists into its halls to follow in the footsteps of their great predecessors. In 2003, the Louvre initiated a new dialogue between the art of today and its permanent collection by inviting artists to present or create works inspired by the museum and its collections. This policy has established a connection and new resonance between the art of the past and contemporary creation. Recent commissions include works by Mike Kelley, Candida Höfer, Joseph Kosuth, Richard Serra, Louise Bourgeois and Willem de Kooning.

She works with artists on solo and group projects. She connected four artists to the Bicycle Film Festival’s installation at the Damon Dash Gallery and has worked closely with Tools for Thought on events such as the Haiti benefit at Sotheby’s and for HomeBase where she curated a group show in a private residence. She worked on the highly lauded 2005 Robert Smithson retrospective at the Whitney Museum and at David Zwirner. She is the New York Communications Manager at Phillips & Company.
