The association of the museum's friends
The Association Camille Claudel in Nogent-sur-Seine, friends of the Musée Camille Claudel, is particularly present in the life of the museum.
A non-profitmaking organization, founded 17 November 2004
Honorary President and support: Reine-Marie Paris, grand-niece of Camille Claudel. Association affiliated with the French Federation of Friends of Museums Societies.
Founded in 2004 by volunteers with a passion for the oeuvre of Camille Claudel, the association has worked diligently for over 10 years to raise public recognition of the artist and to encourage the artistic practice of sculpting and modelling.
Predating the creation of its museum, the association now strives to further develop the Musée Camille Claudel, while promoting the institution both within France and abroad. It favours the enrichment and showcasing of its collections, while participating in restoration programmes and supporting research.
Each and every donation contributes to raising public awareness of this unique artist and to the appreciation and admiration of her works.
The Association Camille Claudel in Nogent-sur-Seine is animated by the key values of passion, respect, openness and dialogue.
Another cornerstone of the association's activity is the practice of sculpting and modelling and the favouring of fine arts expression more generally, with the goal of spreading and sharing the arts with the general public, while also offering an accessible means of artistic self-expression and fulfilment.
