The Museum's Partners
The Musée Lalique project is sponsored by Région Alsace, the General Council of Bas-Rhin, the Community of Municipalities of the Pays de La Petite Pierre and the Municipality of Wingen-sur-Moder; these authorities have been united in a syndicat mixte since 1 January 2008. It is this body which is responsible for managing the museum.
Partners in the construction of the Musée Lalique
Les membres du Syndicat mixte du Musée Lalique assurent également le financement de la construction avec une contribution forte de l’Etat et de l’Union européenne.
The members of the Syndicat Mixte du Musée Lalique were also responsible for funding construction, with a significant contribution from the State and the European Union. Endorsed as a Rural Excellence Project and included in the Project Contract 2007-2013 (territorial and convention section, Vosges Massif - National Fund for Territorial Planning and Development), the museum has also been awarded the appellation Musée de France. In addition to inclusion in a national quality network, this recognition enables the Musée Lalique to obtain loans for temporary exhibitions or deposits from other Musées de France. Its acquisitions are also facilitated by the right of first refusal and financial support from the FRAM – Regional Acquisition Fund for Museums. Happy to avail itself of these provisions and thanks to the kind contribution of various patrons, the museum is today proud to possess a series of important works of high quality. Already, ten pieces belonging to the museum's permanent collection have been loaned for the René Lalique, Bijoux d’Exception exhibition, which was held in spring 2007 at the Musée du Luxembourg in Paris and from 7 September 2007 to 13 January 2008 at the Bröhan Museum in Berlin.
The Lalique Company
The Lalique Company, which has supported and accompanied the project since the outset, has signed an agreement with the Musée Lalique, which creates important ties between the two structures. It has agreed to loan a large part of its collections of jewellery, works in glass and drawings, in addition to the donation of pieces in crystal.
The Musée Lalique has also been able to enlarge its permanent collection thanks to the support of the following patrons:
- Caisse des Dépôts
- Caisse d’Epargne d’Alsace
- Crédit Immobilier de France
- Crédit Mutuel
- Electricité de Strasbourg
- Syndicat des Eaux et de l’Assainissement du Bas-Rhin
- Veolia Eau
