Musee Dapper Museum to Close its Doors in Paris

Paris — The Musee Dapper Museum in Paris will

close its doors tomorrow (Monday), with officials citing high costs and

low attendance as reasons for shutting the privately funded, non-profit

museum of traditional and contemporary African art.

The institution moved to its current location in the 16th

arrondissement in 2000. More than 50 exhibitions have been held in

the space. The museum, which has a Euros 6 entrance fee, was founded by

the late engineer Michael Leveau through his organisation, the Dapper

Foundation.
