Upcoming events

October 6th Luncheon
12:30, National Arts Club

Artips Co-Founder & CEO Coline Debayle and Agathe Joly, International Partnerships & Development Manager, will talk about their new site, Artips.

Artips are short and sweet stories in French or English about different artists and artworks. Fun and easy to read, the stories swoop into your inbox three times a week. 
A nice little freebie for your brain and a good conversation starter for a next Paris American Club event.


Coline Debayle, the Art Detective

“Art is the only way to run away without leaving home.”
– Twyla Tharp

Coline is a natural born detective who uses her investigative skills to uncover hidden secrets about art.

Applying her degrees in business and political science, she builds partnerships and explores opportunities for Artips. Nothing gets her more excited than a good brioche and brightening someone’s day with a great story about art.


Agathe Joly, the Museum Explorer

“Art is not what you see, but what you make others see.”
– Edgar Degas

Growing up in Paris and New York, Agathe spent most of her life flying across the Atlantic. An Art History buff through and through (she’s got the degrees to prove it), she originally came to Artips to write about the hidden secrets she learned in the ivory tower. Today she runs around town, spreading the word about Artips and seeking out exciting new opportunities with museums, galleries and anyone who wants to share art with the world.

“Je t’aime, moi non plus…”
