New Orleans Museum of Art

12 anmeldelser

Walking up the steps and through the imposing Doric columns and impressive classical façade, you wouldn’t know that the New Orleans Museum of Art began over 100 years from very humble origins. First erected in 1911, the city’s oldest fine art museum then housed only a paltry nine works of art. What is now one of the greatest art collections in the American South, today the New Orleans Museum of Art houses almost 40,000 objects on permanent display and is heralded for its impressive collection of French, American, African, and Japanese art, as well as its extensive photography showings, and glass works. The grounds themselves are part of the display, and visitors can stroll the five-acre Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden where they’ll find over 60 sculptures situated on beautifully landscaped footpaths strewn with ancient live oak trees and rippling lagoons.
