What is FRAME? 

French Regional American Museum Exchange (FRAME) is a consortium of 26 major museums in France and North America that promotes cultural exchange in the context of museum collaborations. FRAME fosters partnerships among its member museums to develop innovative exhibitions, educational and public programs, and professional exchanges among museum staff, and maintains a bi-lingual website to reach global audiences.

What is the Relationship Between VAM and FRAME?

VAM currently serves as administrator of FRAME in North America. VAM’s experience with customer service, association management, and membership, and with being a leader among national museum organizations complements FRAME’s international influence among art museums and their unique structure of NGO and Government institutions linked together. As we help them grow, they can help us to become better versed in art museums and their unique needs.  The FRAME North America office is maintained at the VMFA's Pauley Center within the VAM office. John Forsythe is coordinator for FRAME in North America. Do you have questions about FRAME? Email John Forsythe, or contact him at 804.358.3171.
