New Orleans, LA – As an expression of deep appreciation and gratitude, the New Orleans Museum of Art (NOMA) announces free admission to first responders and healthcare professionals upon the reopening of the museum through December 31, 2020.
“While we aren’t sure when we will be able to re-open our doors to the public, we know that when we do, we want to honor those who put themselves on the front lines to fight this unprecedented crisis: healthcare professionals and first responders,” said Susan Taylor, Montine McDaniel Freeman Director. “When the time is right, we look forward to welcoming back our public, staff and volunteers, all of whom are critically important to our success.”
