NOMA Contemporaries is an affinity group for individuals interested in learning about contemporary art, meeting artists, and supporting exhibitions, programs, and art acquisitions in NOMA’s contemporary department.
Contemporaries Events for 2013
- Bi-monthly events, including tours of local artist studios and private collections
- A guided visit through the Saint Claude Arts District, New Orleans’ most vibrant destination for experimental emerging art
- A guided trip in December to Art Basel Miami Beach and the surrounding fairs and private collections
- The opportunity to vote on an acquisition of a work of art for NOMA’s contemporary collection (based off a selection)
The cost of affiliation to the Contemporaries is $1,000. These dues are in addition to NOMA membership dues (which begin at $60 for individuals and $75 for families). Your contribution will directly offset the cost of Contemporaries programming, a portion of which goes towards a fund for Contemporaries acquisitions. Checks are payable to the New Orleans Museum of Art, with the notation of “Contemporaries.” Please note, based on IRS guidelines, only contributions over the value of goods and services are tax deductible. We estimate the non-deductible portion of a $1,000 Contemporaries membership to be $400.
As this is a new venture at NOMA, I am available to help answer any questions and gather your feedback as to how this group should be shaped and evolve.
I look forward to future conversations.
Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art
