Exhibition opening reception on September 10, 6 to 8 p.m. Exhibition on display through October 30.


Exhibition curated by Shanny Peer, and co-organized by the Maison Française and Rare Book & Manuscript Division of Columbia Libraries


This exhibition celebrates the 100-year anniversary of the Columbia Maison Française, founded in 1913 and the first French academic and cultural center on an American campus.  It presents a wonderful collection of unpublished photographs, documents, program materials, and AV archives. These are woven into a narrative celebrating the rich history of the Maison Française and the role it has played in exposing Americans to notable French thinkers and artists, disseminating French and Francophone culture and ideas in the U.S.,  and nurturing strong ties between Columbia University, France, and the Francophone world.   


The Centennial Exhibition is on display at the Maison Française in Buell Hall. It is free and open to the public from September 5-October 30, Monday-Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and during evening events at the Maison Française. "Sneak preview" of the exhibition is September 5, from 6 to 7:30 p.m., with free movie snacks and raffle tickets for prizes distributed at Films on the Green screening that evening.
