In celebration of the New Orleans Center for Creative Arts’ fortieth anniversary, the New Orleans Museum of Art honors five artists–faculty and alumni–from the renowned high school conservatory during LOVE in the Garden 2014. Similarly focused on arts education, NOMA provided classroom space to a nascent NOCCA in the mid-1970s as it launched its new arts-focused school. Today, NOCCA offers 11 arts training programs and an innovative academic curriculum providing an educational experience unlike any other.
