Jim Jarmusch And Maxwell L. Anderson Receive The Insignia Of The Order Of Arts And Letters

On Thursday, June 23, 2011, Antonin Baudry, Cultural Counselor of the French Embassy, conferred upon filmmaker Jim Jarmusch and museum director Maxwell L. Anderson the insignia officer and chevalier, respectively, of the Order of Arts and Letters.  The Ordre des Arts et des Lettres (Order of Arts and Letters) was created in 1957 to recognize eminent artists and writers, as well as individuals who have contributed to furthering the arts in France and throughout the world.

The Order, which is composed of three ranks (Chevalier, Officer, Commander), is given out twice annually to only a few hundred people worldwide. Several Americans have received the award, including Paul Auster, Ornette Coleman, Marilyn Horne, Bill T. Jones, Richard Meier, Robert Paxton, Yvonne Rainer, Robert Redford, Steve Reich, Patti Smith, Robert Storr, and Meryl Streep.
