The FRench American Museum Exchange (FRAME) promotes cultural exchange in the context of museum collaborations between North American and French institutions. It is a vibrant bilateral organization founded in 1999 by Elizabeth Rohatyn and Françoise Cachin, and remains the only organization of its kind. The FRAME network began with 18 museums and has nearly doubled in size in the past two decades. Plans are actively underway to further expand this network, and broaden and deepen its impact.
