Love in the Garden

Join the New Orleans Museum of Art for this year’s 8th annual LOVE in the Garden on Friday, September 28!
Patron Party – 7 pm to 8 pm
Garden Party – 8 pm to 11 pm

This year’s LOVE is fresh and new, whimsical and hip, thanks to some innovations by Co-Chairs Margaret Jones and Karen Gundlach, and their artistic and energetic committee. This year NOMA and the LOVE committee honors George Dunbar, Rashida Ferdinand, Michell Gaudet, Miranda Lake and George Schmidt.

Entertainment features John Boutte, Sasha Masakowski, DJ Soul Sister and the 610 Stompers and – as always – LOVE features unlimited food and libations from over 30 of New Orleans finest restaurants and caterers.

From 7 pm to 8 pm, the smooth sounds of Sasha Masakoski will entertain the patrons as they chat and enjoy drinks and delectable treats during the Patron Party.

LOVE grows at 8:00 pm when the Garden Party commences and the party progresses deeper in to the mystically lighted and decorated park. New Orleans’ own John Boutté (“The Treme Song”) will assure that LOVE will keep everybody dancing. Dance under century-old oak trees and sashay on the dance floor, which is graciously underwritten by the Lupin Foundation. The 610 Stompers will pump up the crowd with several dances, and then DJ Soul Sister will spin the rest of the night away.

As always, LOVE honors local artists whose work and lives have made a contribution to our City. Be sure not to miss the 8:15 pm artists presentation.

Special thanks to generous sponsors: John Boutté for donating his personal musical services; to the Kabacoff Family Foundation; and to the above-mentioned Lupin Foundation; and to the many patrons and sponsors of this event.

Attire is dressy casual. In the event of rain, the event will relocate to the Great Hall inside the museum. Both the garden and the museum are fully wheelchair accessible. To purchase tickets, call 504-658-4121.
