First Fridays at NOMA: Garden of Earthly Delights

Fri, June 3rd at 6:00 PM - 10:00 PM

#ExploreNOMA after hours.

The museum is open late night for an evening packed with musical performances, tours, and special pop-ups.

Each month, the museum presents First Fridays at NOMA, an after-hours inclusive programmatic mix of live DJs and bands; local creatives speaking about their favorite works of art; a range of performance and dance; and unique experiences of all kinds in response to art from across time and place.

Participants will meet artists, get creative, and immerse themselves in New Orleans’s creative community. For this month’s First Fridays program, we’re heading outside for a night inspired by all that the Besthoff Sculpture Garden has to offer.

$30 General Admission | $15 for Members

Buy Tickets

Because admission to Queen Nefertari’s Egypt is included with your ticket, you must select a timed ticket your visit. You’ll have access to the entire night’s events from 6 to 10 pm, but that selected time will be when you’re able to view this special exhibition. Even if you don’t plan to visit Queen Nefertari’s Egypt, you still need to select a time when checking out.

*Please note that food and drinks are not included in the ticket price. They are available for purchase directly from our partner vendors.

Mahmoud Chouki

NOMA is pleased to work with internationally renowned multi-instrumentalist and composer Mahmoud Chouki, who will organize musical performances for each First Fridays program in collaboration with museum staff.

Worner Charitable Trust through the PNC Charitable Trusts Grant Review Committee; New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival and Foundation; and the Louisiana Division of the Arts, Office of Cultural Development, Department of Culture, Recreation, and Tourism, in cooperation with the Louisiana State Arts Council. Funding has also been provided by the National Endowment for the Arts.
