But as the coronavirus requires everyone to stay at home, la Fondation Louis Vuitton (the Fondation) has been closed with all events canceled.
Though closed, the Fondation will now host 3 digital events every week: an exhibition visit with the curators every Wednesday at 6 p.m., a concert on Friday at 8:30 p.m. and a performance of one of the promotions of the Cello Excellence Class on Sunday at 5:30 p.m.
