A gift of €20 million from an anonymous American donor will help to finance a major transformation project at the Musée d’Orsay in Paris. Titled ‘Orsay Wide Open’, the scheme will see the museum’s exhibition spaces expanded, with 13,000 square feet of current office space repurposed for new galleries, in addition to the creation of an education and research centre. The donation, which was received through the non-profit group American Friends of the Musée d’Orsay, will fund the project alongside the museum’s private funds. The project is expected to be completed by 2026.
