NOMA And Sculpture Garden Prepare For 2019 Expansion

Feb 15, 2018

There are more reasons than ever to go to the Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden in City Park. You can wander its shady paths, contemplate its 64 sculptures, and cross over its quiet lagoon, where hundreds of Louisiana irises will burst into bloom come springtime. But that’s not all that’s blossoming at the Sculpture Garden. 

The New Orleans Museum of Art has announced a six-acre expansion that will offer new works, new programming, an outdoor classroom, an amphitheater and an increased commitment to the environmental impact of this unique setting. NolaVie's Renée Peck speaks with NOMA director Susan Taylor about all that’s going on at the Sculpture Garden.
