Paris at Midday

We arrived at the Saint-Germain-des-Prés neighborhood around noon today, finally setting foot in our final destination: Paris!

To kick off our Paris schedule, we headed to the Mona Bismarck American Center, where Porter’s Ancient Danielle Berger Fortier (’97) serves as Director of Exhibitions and Programs. The Center welcomes Parisian audiences to American art, artists, and themes. She was happy to speak with the students about Mona Bismarck, the Center, and Porter’s memories!

Ancient Danielle Berger Fortier discusses how she works to bring exhibitions into the historic space of Mona Bismarck’s home.
