An Employee Strike Forces the Musee d’Orsay to Close

Parisian museumgoers anxious to see Musée d'Orsay's new exhibition featuring artistic depictions of the world's oldest profession will have to wait. Due to a strike from workers protesting plans to keep the museum open seven days a week, the institution was forced to remain closed today.

The Musée d'Orsay announced the closure on Twitter. According to the New York Times, the museum is currently negotiating with strikers and does not know when it will reopen.

Protestors shut down New York's Guggenheim Museum in protest over what they call the museum's inaction in ensuring decent conditions for workers in Abu Dhabi, where the museum is planning to open a new museum, according to reports at Artinfo, which broke the news, and the "New York Times."

The occupiers unfurled a giant red banner reading “Meet Workers' Demands Now! May Day 2015."
