Gallery Talk: Geoffrey Mann’s “The Second Line” Cocktail Service with Curator Mel Buchanan

Wed, June 19th at 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Gallery talks are casual conversations between artists, curators, and other special guests with NOMA visitors frequently scheduled throughout the year. Louisiana residents receive free admission to NOMA on Wednesdays courtesy of The Helis Foundation.


Join Decorative Arts Curator Mel Buchanan for a discussion about Geoffrey Mann’s The Second Line Cocktail Service, a set of glassware commissioned by NOMA in shapes that were informed by street conversations and music in New Orleans. A video, shown below, accompanies this display.
