Dear NOMA Friend,
The impact of your support is easy to see at the New Orleans Museum of Art.
From engaging public programs, to the care and conservation of almost 40,000 objects in NOMA’s permanent collection, your generosity enables the museum to connect with visitors and the community in new and compelling ways, and fuels the museum’s growth into a center of creativity and innovation.
We can’t do it without you.
Because of your support, the past year at NOMA has been wonderfully successful. We’ve organized dynamic exhibitions such as Inventing the Modern World: Decorative Arts at the World’s Fairs, 1851–1939, while highlighting the contemporary work of vanguard New Orleans artists like Rashaad Newsome. We’ve offered an increasing amount of programs that encourage meaningful interaction with the museum’s collections, including hands-on activities for families and students, and interdisciplinary events like Friday Nights at NOMA.
With every gift you make to NOMA, you reinforce how much art and culture—from New Orleans and around the world—mean to you. And that makes a difference in our ability to broaden the museum’s impact.
I hope you will continue to bolster our efforts by contributing to NOMA’s year-end annual fund campaign. Annual donations of any amount make so many things possible for the museum:
- $140 provides transportation for 40 students to and from NOMA
- $250 supplies 25 children with art-making materials
- $1,000 restores an object for exhibition presentation
- $1,500 frames a work of art in the museum’s permanent collection
- $2,500 underwrites a professional development workshop for local teachers
- $3,000 sponsors an insightful lecture, artist talk, or other public program
The year ahead at NOMA promises to be even more exciting as we bring major exhibitions to New Orleans audiences. These include Photography and the American Civil War from the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Behind Closed Doors: Art in the Spanish American Home, 1492–1898 from the Brooklyn Museum, and an expansive retrospective covering four decades of work from conceptual artist Mel Chin- organized by NOMA, to name only a few. Your gift of $50 or $5,000 will go a long way in helping NOMA continue to offer enriching experiences for the entire family.
Remember, NOMA is now open more and later than ever, so I invite you to experience firsthand all that your giving helps accomplish. I hope to see you in the galleries of your museum soon.
With my best regards,
Susan M. Taylor
