Gallery Talk with Creative Assembly Cohort Member Daniel Fitzpatrick
Wed, December 27th at 12:30 PM - 1:00 PM
Join us in the galleries each Wednesday for weekly talks with artists, curators, and other special guests. During these casual conversations, we’ll take a close look at different works currently on view at NOMA.
This week, join Creative Assembly Cohort member Daniel Fitzpatrick for a poetic journey through NOMA’s permanent collection. Danny’s poems bring the museum and its galleries into dialogue with New Orleans culture and communities as well as with the poetic tradition. He hopes to encourage viewers to join the artistic conversation and to see their own lives and traditions reflected in NOMA’s paintings, sculptures, and spaces.
Free with museum admission. Louisiana residents receive free admission to NOMA on Wednesdays courtesy of The Helis Foundation. When you arrive at NOMA, check in at the front desk for directions to the appropriate gallery.
