The Museum of Fine Arts would like to thank the generous donors, deposits and bequests that continually enrich its collection, from the Ville du Locle to the Swiss Confederation, as well as the Société des Beaux-Arts et du Musée, which created the museum, for its unfailing support.

We would also like to extend our warmest thanks to our partners for the animal instinct / instinct animal exhibition : MUZOO (La Chaux-de-Fonds), La Salamandre (Neuchâtel) and the exhibition’s lenders : the Musée paysan et artisanal (La Chaux-de-Fonds), the Karma International gallery (Zürich), the Galleriapiù (Bologna) and, finally, the private collection (Geneva). We would also like to thank the Bibliothèque des Jeunes (Le Locle) for their participation in the Marie-Anne Calame room, designed for young audiences, as well as our valued technical partners: LACK Images and Makro Art.

The MBAL relies on public funding granted́ by the Ville du Locle and that provided by the Société́ des Beaux-Arts et du Musée, Le Locle.

In 2023, the MBAL exhibitions received fundamental support from the Loterie Romande, which we would like to thank warmly.

We would also like to thank the Pro Helvetia foundation for their support for our virtual exhibition space : ORBIT_E, which has been presenting the work of artist Lauren Huret since June 2023.

We would also like to thank Dixi Services SA (Le Locle) for their financial contribution this year, and the Ernst Göhner Stiftung for their invaluable contribution to this exhibition.

MBAL’s partners also include Nivarox-FAR SA (Le Locle) and the Bureau de contrôle des ouvrages en métaux précieux (La Chaux-de-Fonds).
