About Arts & Letters
NOMA’s exhibition Ten Years Gone is designed to give visitors the opportunity to reflect on the city’s history as well as their own personal histories which is inspiring a series of literary programs related to the passage of time in New Orleans in the ten years following Hurricane Katrina. This fall, NOMA will be launching the “Arts & Letters” series, bringing in authors who will discuss a variety of topics.
