"NOMA at 100" Will Coviello on what NOMA has planned for its Centennial

Although the New Orleans Museum of Art isn’t celebrating its official birthday until Dec. 16, it is opening a show of its gifts a little early.

“It’s an important way to celebrate the museum’s history, its legacy and the legacy of our donors,” director Susan Taylor says. “A milestone characterizes an institution.”

NOMA began commemorating its centennial year last November with the show Great Collectors, Great Donors: The Making of the New Orleans Museum of Art, 1910-2010. This new exhibition, NOMA 100: Gifts for the Second Century, features more than 100 works solicited as donations to its permanent collection, and the December celebration will mark the actual anniversary with an array of special events.
