Join us for dining and dancing under the stars and the oaks in the Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden!

On Friday, September 27, 2013, NOMA will hold its annual LOVE in the Garden celebration. Co-Chairs Elizabeth LeBlanc and Jennifer Rareshide have planned a delightful evening of dining, dancing, and celebration in the Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden. Sydney and Walda Besthoff will serve as Honorary Co-Chairs. Proceeds from LOVE in the Garden directly support NOMA’s inspiring exhibitions and programs.

As always, LOVE will honor local artists whose work and lives have made a contribution to the city of New Orleans. This year’s honorees are Lin Emery, Courtney Egan, Richard Johnson, Grover Mouton, and Amanda Stone Talley. In addition to recognizing these outstanding artists, this year’s LOVE will also celebrate the tenth anniversary of the magnificent Besthoff Sculpture Garden.

LOVE begins with a Patron Party at 7:00 p.m., followed by the Garden Party at 8:00 p.m. The event features an open bar, cuisine from many of New Orleans’s finest restaurants and caterers, and live music provided by some of the city’s greatest talent, including the Brass-A-Holics. Attire for the event is garden party casual.

In the event of rain, the party will be held in the Great Hall inside the museum. Contact Kristen Jochem with questions at (504) 658-4121.

“It was an eye-opener to be exposed to an artist (Thornton Dial) we had never heard of. He truly has an inventive way of presenting ideas of social justice. Keep up the good work. We'll be back!” Herman and Helen Sallmen; Ottawa, Ontario, Canada
