Noontime Talk: “Decorative Arts at NOMA,” with Curator Mel Buchanan

Wed, May 24th, 2017 at 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Join Curator Mel Buchanan as she leads visitors through the newly reimagined Lupin Foundation Decorative Arts Galleries, a multiphase work in progress. Included is a dazzling large display of glass vessels from the Melvin P. Billups collection. Billups assembled one of America’s most important glass collections in the 1950s, amassing more than 1,000 pieces that cover three millennia of glass craft and technology.

Noontime Talks are brief, casual discussions on exhibitions or works of art in the galleries given by NOMA curators and special guests. Admission is FREE on Wednesdays to Louisiana residents with ID.
