NOMA celebrates 13th annual ‘LOVE in the Garden’ fundraiser in City Park’s Sculpture Garden, Sept. 23

Written by
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 LOVE in the Garden fundraiser 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 and NOMA a million and one 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 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 13th annual LOVE in the Garden. Food, music, and a little love under the oaks, 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 Storyville Stompers Brass Band and Mojeaux as well as fantastic cuisine from some of New Orleans’ best restaurants, including The Munch Factory, Biscuits and Buns on Banks, The Ruby Slipper Cafe, and MANY, many more!” In addition to the regular party, be sure to check out the late-night party featuring DJ Nikki Pennie and some of New Orleans' favorite food trucks, including Diva Dawg, Grilling Shilling, and others. 

This year's event will also include the LOVE Cocktail Challenge presented by Skyy Vodka. "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 LOVE Cocktail Challenge will feature celebrated craft bartenders in pursuit of the most creative interpretations of LOVE!" Sip on creations by Roger Blais of the Polo Club Lounge at the Windsor Court Hotel, Tyler Chauvin of Trèo, Nick Detrich of Cane & Table, Abigail Gullo of Compere Lapin, Paul Gustings of Empire Bar at Broussard’s, Chris Hannah | French 75 of Arnaud’s, Chris McMillian of Revel, T. Cole Newton of Twelve Mile Limit, Kimberly Patton-Bragg of Three Muses, and Daniel Victory of Victory.
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 Elenora Rukiya Brown, Skylar Fein, Gene Koss, Ashley Longshore, and Alexa Pulitzer. 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!
