NOMA 100: Gifts for the Second Century
The New Orleans Museum of Art (NOMA) opened on December 16, 1911 owning just 11 works of art. Today the museum has over 35,000 objects in its holdings. NOMA’s centennial year will culminate with an exhibition of 100 works or art given during the past five years in honor of the museum’s anniversary. These works demonstrate the continued commitment of a dedicated and generous group of donors, and also herald new donors and new directions for the permanent collection as the museum embarks on the second century. Highlights include works by Anish Kapoor, Augustus Saint-Gaudens, Jasper Johns, a room-sized installation by Keith Sonnier, Andy Warhol, Sol LeWitt, Dale Chihuly and Robert Polidori.
