FRANCE-ART-MUSEUM-LOUVRE

France's President Francois Hollande, (2ndL) and former miner Lucien Laurent (C), arrive for the inauguration of the Louvre-Lens Museum in the northern French town of Lens on december 4, 2012. The Paris museum opens on December 12 a gleaming new satellite in Lens. Blighted by the closure of the region's last mines 20 years ago, with unemployment at a stubbornly high 16 percent, Lens is hoping for a renaissance of its own from the glass and polished-aluminium structure.
