This year’s Odyssey Ball will focus on the incredible collectors whose donations of art work have helped create our Museum. Simply put, at NOMA, Art Lives because of these amazing patrons.
Director Emeritus John Bullard will premiere the newest exhibition: “Great Collectors/Great Patrons: The Making of the New Orleans Museum of Art, 1910-2010” honoring the many collectors who helped build the Museum’s permanent collection. Honorary Chairman and special guest for the evening is Mrs. Frederick M. Stafford, who along with her late husband opened the very first Odyssey Ball forty-five years ago. That Ball premiered the exhibition, “Odyssey of An Art Collector,” featuring the art collection Mr. and Mrs. Stafford donated to the Museum.
So mark your calendars, join the fun and celebrate. With your participation, at the New Orleans Museum of Art, Art Lives because of you.
