The 51st-annual Odyssey Ball celebrates and enhances the New Orleans Museum of Art in an evening of unparalleled elegance. Critically important to our treasured museum and the wide community it serves, Odyssey raises the funds necessary to support NOMA’s nationally-recognized exhibitions and educational programs, which bring more than 250,000 annual visitors to the museum and sculpture garden.
Odyssey 2017 will commemorate the New Orleans Tricentennial and the integral place of both NOMA and the Odyssey Ball in New Orleans’ cultural life and history. For more than five decades, Odyssey has created its own New Orleans tradition. L’Odyssée: A Celebration 300 Years in the Making presented by IBERIABANK will continue this legacy on Saturday, November 4, 2017 in NOMA’s enduring marble halls.
