Visionaries Gala & Garden Party Presented by First Horizon

Thu, November 7th - Fri, November 8th

Celebrate 20 years of NOMA’s Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden during the Visionaries Gala and Garden Party Presented by First Horizon.

Visionaries Gala and Garden Party
Presented by First Horizon

Gala | Thursday, November 7
Garden Party | Friday, November 8

Honorary Chairs: Walda Besthoff, Valerie Besthoff, Virginia Besthoff, and Jane Steiner
Event Chairs: Liza and Filippo Feoli, Robyn and Andrew Schwarz, Tod and Kenya Smith, Jenny and Robb Vorhoff
NOMA Volunteer Committee Chair: Tully Forrester Jordan
National Chairs: Keith Fox and Tom Keyes, Donna and Ben Rosen

The two events—on Thursday, November 7, and Friday, November 8, respectively—will highlight the natural and artistic beauty of the garden and will raise funds to support the future of the Besthoff Sculpture Garden and NOMA.

NOMA’s Besthoff Sculpture Garden opened in November 2003 with guidance and support from its namesake patrons: Walda Besthoff and the late Sydney J. Besthoff III. Since its opening and with a major expansion in 2019, the Besthoff Sculpture Garden has become an important destination for local visitors and tourists from around the world.

The Visionaries Gala and Garden Party will serve as capstones for a year of programming celebrating this landmark anniversary for the Besthoff Sculpture Garden.

NOMA is incredibly grateful for the loyal and generous support of our sponsors, patrons, and attendees of LOVE in the Garden and Odyssey as we shift our fall 2024 fundraising efforts to this landmark celebration. Help us ensure the continued growth of the Besthoff Sculpture Garden and NOMA and join us as a Visionary.
