Louvre Gets Money For New Islamic Wing

“The Emir of Kuwait, Sheikh Sabah Al-Sabah, has donated €5m ($6.5m) towards the establishment of a new Islamic wing at the Louvre, to open in 2009 at a cost of €56m ($68m). This follows another donation made early last year by the Saudi Prince Al-Walid Bin Talal of €17m ($21m) to the Paris museum.”
