The Venue

Just north of Washington Square, at the entrance to historic, cobblestoned Washington Mews, stands a New York landmark, La Maison Française. Since its founding in 1957, the “French House” has become the most active center of French-American cultural and intellectual exchange to be found on any American campus.

La Maison Française occupies a nineteenth-century red-brick carriage house. Inside, the ample yet intimate space of the ground-floor salon has been carefully adapted to uses ranging from art exhibits and receptions to lectures and film screenings, with a seating capacity of one hundred.
