Throughout the dates of Art in Bloom, March 25 through 29, two tours daily of the Besthoff Sculpture Garden will be offered at noon and 1 pm, weather dependent. (Call 504.658.4153 to verify.)

Sited on twelve acres adjacent to the museum, the garden contains more than ninety works by renowned sculptors placed among a picturesque mature grove of pine, magnolia, and moss-draped live oak trees bisected by a lagoon. Represented sculptors include Pierre Auguste Renoir, Rene Magritte, Henry Moore, Isamu Noguchi, George Rodrigue, and Robert Indiana, among others. Meet at the gates to the garden, which offers free admission year-round.
