NOMA celebrates eleventh annual ‘Love in the Garden’ fundraiser in City Park’s Sculpture Garden

Written by  IntheNOLA.com
If you haven’t realized that gardens and garden parties are where the love, laughs, and good times are with good food and great people, then maybe the New Orleans Museum of Art’s (NOMA) annual fundraiser Love in the Garden inside the Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden in New Orleans City Park will convince you.
Now, we know you’ve been to City Park a million and one times and to NOMA a few hundred times, but the Sculpture Garden seems to be a hidden treasure for many New Orleanians. Located next to NOMA, the Sculpture Garden is “home to over sixty sculptures from artists from all over the world and set in a stunning environment of meandering footpaths.” From the moment you walk into the garden, you are transported into another world…a world of huge oak trees, bridges and water, and of course sculptures galore. THIS is the setting for the 11th annual Love in the Garden. Food, music, and a little love under the trees, stars, and sculptures.    
 
Love in the Garden is a garden party right here in the Sculpture Garden," said NOMA. "This year, we have amazing entertainment with the NOCCA Jazz & Vocal Ensembles, The Yat Pack, and Mario Abney & The Abney Effect as well as fantastic cuisine from some of New Orleans’ best restaurants, including Cafe Degas, Delachaise, Palace Cafe, and MANY, many more!”

New to this year's event is the LOVE Cocktail Challenge. "LOVE in the Garden has celebrated numerous visual and culinary artists in New Orleans over the last few years. This year, we’ll toast the artistry of craft cocktails and their makers too! The inaugural LOVE Cocktail Challenge will feature celebrated craft bartenders in pursuit of the most creative interpretations of LOVE!"
 
But Love in the Garden is not only about the eating, dancing, and drinking. “Each year, we honor five New Orleans artists as well. This year, we are honoring local artists Jennifer Odem, Brandan Odums, Mary Jane Parker, Ersy Schwartz, and Michel Varisco, all of whom are either faculty or alumni of the New Orleans Center for Creative Arts (NOCCA). We celebrate and thank them for being a part of our art community and attendees are able to meet them.”
 
This year’s Love in the Garden promises to be a fantastic event in a wonderful setting. Come show your love at Love in the Garden!
