Odyssey 2020 presented by IBERIABANK | First Horizon includes five nights of art-and-music themed events


On Tuesday, November 24, Governor John Bel Edwards announced that Louisiana would move to modified Phase Two restrictions on Wednesday, November 25. Those modified restrictions include a revised limit on indoor gatherings. The New Orleans Museum of Art is committed to the safety of our guests and staff, and to complying with state and city safety regulations.

As such, we are postponing the December 3 and 4 Odyssey events. We hope that circumstances will be favorable in first quarter 2021 for us to reschedule, and will be in touch with ticket holders as soon as new dates are set.

Please know how very grateful we are for support of the New Orleans Museum of Art, and this event which provides critical operating support to the museum.

If you have any questions in the interim, please email odyssey@noma.org.


Join us for one of Odyssey’s five art- and musical-themed evenings exclusively limited to 80 guests each night. Guests will begin with cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, and a special curatorial tour, or an art or artist spotlight led by one of NOMA’s top curators. Guests will then enter the New Orleans Museum of Art’s newly renovated Courtyard to enjoy themed music and a fabulous three-course seated dinner by Ralph Brennan Catering & Events.
