I’m sure we’ve all thought about it – what would you do if you suddenly came into a LOT of money? Maybe you won the lottery, or maybe some old great-great relative you’ve never heard of passed away and suddenly you have millions you didn’t have the day before.
So, now you’re rich. What do you do? Maybe you take that once-in-a-lifetime vacation you’ve always dreamed of with all the luxuries of a private jet and a designer shopping spree. Or maybe, just maybe, you open up an…art museum?
French billionaire François Pinault has always been a fan of the arts, with his big donations and amazing private collection. Soon, his $170 million dollar art museum will be opening in Paris, much to the delight of art-lovers everywhere.
The museum, which should be finished by next June, is cloaked in mystery, suspense, and has created a buzz around Paris. He has said that he will be opening the gallery with a piece by one of the world’s biggest male artists and everyone is excited to find out who and what pieces will be displayed.
This is not the first museum that Pinault has bankrolled. He already built a beautiful space in Italy, which is called the Palazzo Grassi. It is known for its gorgeous 18th century aesthetic. His other museum is in a former customs building in Venice, Italy and is called Punta della Dogana. His Paris museum is said to be even bigger and better than his other venues.
