Small Talks are ten-to-fifteen-minute gallery talks focused on one object or a small group of objects. These brief informal sessions enrich the visitor experience and allow visitors to learn more about works of art in NOMA’s permanent holdings as well as those on view in temporary exhibitions. Admission to NOMA is free to all Louisiana residents on Wednesdays courtesy of The Helis Foundation.
Join sequin artist Georges Valris for a discussion about the exhibition of Vodou flags in Bondye: Between and Beyond. Valris collaborated with Tina Girouard on the Erzulie artwork on view in the exhibition.
