Join fellow Huskies and Dr. Kelly Spearman-Bandey, a renowned art lecturer in the English-speaking community of Paris, for 1½-hour tour of Les Amis du Carnavalet Museum followed by appetizers and drinks at Cafe le Sevigné.
The Carnavalet Museum is dedicated to the history of the city. The museum occupies two neighboring mansions: the Hôtel Carnavalet and the former Hôtel Le Peletier de Saint Fargeau, both built in the mid-16th century. The museum opened to the public in 1880 with expansions in 1989.
Spearman-Bandey is a doctor of the History of Art with a PhD from the Sorbonne University. In addition to her Art Consultancy (XVIIIth and XIXth century furniture expert) she teaches Art History for various American college and university programs (including Columbia, Skidmore, Bennington, and Iona), and is a well published journalist and art critic.
At the conclusion of the tour, the group will walk to Cafe le Sevigné for appetizers and drinks. Located at the top of Rue Payenne, the quaint café is close proximity to the Square Georges Cain. Inside, the decor is classic and the staff are friendly and accommodating.
