Art & AC – Free Event
To help Louisianans beat the heat, The Helis Foundation has again teamed up with some of New Orleans’ largest art institutions for the third year to offer free admission when temperatures hits 95 degrees. In partnership with WVUE-TV (FOX 8)’s meteorological team, The Helis Foundation announces the kickoff of “Art & AC” throughout the month of August.
Free Admission To Your Favorite Museums
When FOX 8 meteorologists say the temperature has hit 95-degrees, Louisiana residents gain free admission to New Orleans Museum of Art, Ogden Museum of Southern Art and Contemporary Arts Center the following day, courtesy of The Helis Foundation. Last year, the award-winning initiative saw more than 5,500 people visit the museums over eight days.
In addition to air conditioning and blockbuster art exhibitions, visitors can expect fun giveaways like sunglasses, fans and water bottles to help keep cool during the summer heat.
