Art can be shown ANYwhere-even an old coal mine!

Oh those whacky Frenchmen!

WHO….would have considered building an art gallery on an old coal mine……

 

Why the French…of course!

the Louvre-Lens  :

“Lens and the heart of the coalfield, a city that has suffered from all the crises and wars of all, a town in the region today, the youngest of France, Nord-Pas de Calais region, famous for its exceptional cultural vitality and density of its network of museums. Lens is ideally situated at the crossroads of Europe, close to Belgium, England, Germany. Lens, a city resolutely turned towards the future.”   Henri Loyrette-Chairman & Director of the Louvre

 

Wonder if we could encounter such a find in Clay County?
